WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Sometimes recognizing the stories of people walking among us takes an outsider's point of view. Filmmaker Rebecca  Kenyon is that outsider with her documentary "Somewhere You Can Call Home."

The Londoner left her own home in 2012 and found herself—and her featured story—in Wilmington, NC. In the film, she follows three Wilmington residents going through life homeless. Their stories of adversity put a humanizing perspective on people often overlooked.

There are three screenings of her film coming up around the Port City.

Friday, April 25—Jengo's Playhouse, 815 Princess St. Show starts at 7 p.m.

Monday, April 28—Courtyard at the Jo Ann Carter Harrelson Center, 20 N. 4 St. Show starts at 5 p.m.

Wednesday, April 30—St. Andrew's AME Zion Church, 1201 S. 9 St. Show starts at 6 p.m.
