Marilyn’s Story is a short film about a woman who goes from housewife to homeless and the events that inspired her descent. The film stars Veronica Young, Carol Damgen, John Henry, William Warren, Ken Wood and Blake Sidoti.
Marilyn’s Story will be shown as the finale of the “Homeless Awareness Night,” sponsored by the California State University, San Bernardino, Athletic Department. It will coincide with the CSUSB Volleyball vs. UC San Diego tournament and will feature Pauly’s Project of Los Angeles, a homeless advocacy group headed by Paul Avila of Los Angeles.
Marilyn’s Story is based on the book, My Name’s Lyman, and the highly-touted Los Angeles theatre production, LYMAN The Musical, written and directed by Anne Johnstonbrown. It’s the story of one woman who, at the age of 42, suddenly finds herself on the streets. Homeless for 25 years, a tragic incident forces her to embark on a final journey, where she will confront her past and solidify her future. Every homeless person has a story. This is one of them.
Attendees are encouraged to bring donations for the homeless, including hygiene items, clothes, shoes, socks and blankets, which will be distributed to the homeless by Pauly’s Project of Los Angeles. (http://www.paulysproject.org/)
