A new film about a homeless community trying to create a self-sustaining tiny house village is screening in Dover.

Destiny's Bridgechronicles the struggle between homeless residents of a New Jersey tent city and the outside community.

Writer/Director Jack Ballo said the film highlights human stories of homelessness.

"I think that’s what people should take away from this, really understanding more about people and that these people count. And that we need to do something to help homeless people."

Ballo walked into the community, camera in hand, to document the struggle between its homeless residents and local public officials.

Ballo said Destiny's Bridgeshows a need for permanent housing for the homeless.

He thinks tiny homes could be the answer. Organizations like Port Hope Delaware are advocating for tiny homes for the homeless here in the First State.

Destiny’s Bridge will screens at the Schwartz Center for the Arts in Downtown Dover at 7 p.m. Wednesday night.

Delaware Public Media' s arts coverage is made possible, in part, by support from theDelaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
