FRONTLINE: Poor Kids FRONTLINE continues its reporting on child poverty in America - revisiting the kids at the heart of the 2012 film, Poor Kids, to see what their lives are like five years later, and offering a powerful, firsthand look at what poverty means to children and the country. Startling and intimate, the film is an indelible portrait of the realities of growing up poor in America, told by children in three families over the course of half a decade. With more than one in six of the nation's children living below the poverty level, the film gives an unforgettable perspective on the impact of unemployment, foreclosure and financial distress through the eyes of the children directly impacted.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
