In this award-winning festival standout, Academy Award-nominee Michele Ohayon "Colors Straight Up" presents a riveting and powerful account of six women who are members of America's growing hidden homeless population. Narrated by Jodie Foster, and with an original musical score by Melissa Etheridge, this heart-wrenching film expertly captures the hardships and triumph these courageous women experience in their daily struggle for survival. Meet Josephine, Reena, Marie, Jeanette, Lou, and Terry. They are intelligent, articulate women who had secure, active and fulfilling lives until one day everything unraveled. Now living out of their cars or in cheap motels, they exist entirely under the radar, too proud to go to shelters or receive public assistance. Both compelling and consciousness-raising, "It Was A Wonderful Life" cuts through the stereotypes and cliches to give a human face to this undeniable tragedy. And, with fresh impact the plight of the homeless, Ohayon shows how these women have managed to make a life for themselves, using only their tremendous ingenuity and perseverance to get by.
