A Show of Strength

A Show of Strength is a 30 film that documents the gentlemen in the weekly community collabARTive art program associated with Peter and Paul Community Services’ Allen Avenue Transitional Program. The weekly program introduces men who are currently homeless, or were at one time, to the processes of fine art. How does art affect and impact our lives? What do we take away and what do we want more of? It’s not just about art, it’s about our lives.

Bob Wilcox sits down with filmmakers Franklin & LuAnn Oros, to talk about the experiences involved within the making of A Show of Strength, along how much the subject of homelessness has an impact on our society today.

Fascinating stories produced by local filmmakers and introduced to us through HEC-TV's partnership with University City's Commission for Local Origination Programming (CALOP). Different hosts interview each of the filmmakers and their films are shown in their entirety.
