Dividing Bar

A groundbreaking look at marginalised people, rather like Paris Is Burning and Colossal Youth in that respect.

Dividing Bar

A heartbreaking documentary on life on the streets not by adults but by teenagers. Of the teenagers documented the one that stands out is Dewayne Pomeroy. With a mom who abandoned him and a father in jail, Dewayne bounced from one place to another during his stay in Seattle just to survive. He was also involved in petty crimes and while this film was being made he committed suicide in a juvenile jail. Only four people attended his funeral including his father and the two prison guards guarding him. Their stories were later made into the movie "American Heart", with Edward Furlong playing Dewayne's part.
