ABOUT THE FILM

The story, the creators, and a glimpse behind the scenes.

BEHIND THE STORY

Though Left Turn is a fictional narrative, it reflects real circumstances. The film was produced to help viewers develop a better understanding of under-resourced neighborhoods and highlight holistic neighborhood revitalization efforts happening in and around Evansville, IN. Many components of the story are based off of real events and facts about Evansville collected through interviews and other research.

The goal of the film is to inspire viewers to embrace the neighbors near them and every neighbor living in Evansville, especially those in under-resourced areas.
