Told through the stories of both care workers and their clients, CARE is a documentary film that shows the many challenges and deep attachments that can be formed between the elderly and the home care workers they depend on - and exposes the cracks in a system that is poorly serving both. The 60 minute documentary will be shown at 6 pm Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Ryan Community Center, 530 Webster Avenue in Rochester. The film will followed by a community discussion. You can watch the trailer above or learn more about the documentary here.
