In 1983, photographer Mary Ellen Mark and journalist Cheryl McCall expanded their Life magazine exposé about homeless teens on the streets of Seattle into this haunting and beautiful film, made in conjunction with filmmaker Martin Bell. The teenage subjects are fascinating, none more so than 14-year-old Tiny, who seems like an elemental force of endurance and will. The film was nominated for an Academy Award.
