The Line-- a documentary by Linda Midgett

Date: 4/14/2013

From Emmy Award-winning producer Linda Midgett, The Line is a groundbreaking documentary chronicling the new face of poverty in America. As Sojourners CEO Jim Wallis puts it, "more and more of our friends are in poverty -- in the pews, in our workplaces -- through no fault of their own, and they are slipping below the poverty level." 


In the Chicago suburbs, a single dad was laid off from his bank and is now a regular at the local food pantry, trying to make it by with   three kids. On Chicago’s west side, deep poverty creates a culture of violence and hopelessness. On the Gulf Coast, a fisherman struggles post-BP oil spill and Hurricane Katrina because environmental crises mean the loss of his livelihood. In North Carolina, we see that hard work and determination don’t always mean success. What does this mean for the future of our country? How do real-life stories change the narrative about poverty?


What can we do about it?
