- Greg Jacobs & Jon Siskel
- United States
From the award-winning team behind the Chicago International Film Festival hit poetry slam documentary Louder than a Bomb, comes this inspiring and emotional film following Jesse Teverbaugh, a charismatic leader at the job-training program Cara. With tough-love and dedication, Teverbaugh mentors four Chicagoans during their precarious journey from homelessness, addiction, and incarceration to stable employment. The Road Up powerfully chronicles not only America’s unforgiving economic and social structures, but also the essential role that community, connection, hope, and love play in overcoming adversity. Directors Greg Jacobs and Jon Siskel in person for pre-film introduction.
