Home and Away

The feature film Where God Left His Shoes deals with an issue many people don’t like to think about: family homelessness. “It really helps people understand what it’s like to be homeless when you’re a family,” notes Dana Smith of United Way. “And I think the really different thing about this movie is that it is not just an entertainment thing; it’s really about educating people about the face of homelessness and hopefully motivating them to participate in our city’s plan to end homelessness.”

That plan would be Denver’s Road Home (United Way is the project’s financial steward). Where God Left His Shoes screens tonight at City Park (between the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Ferril Lake) as part of the city’s free Movies in the Park series, but donations will be accepted, and proceeds will benefit Denver’s Road Home. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m.; for more information, visit www.unitedwaydenver.org.
