Our story about BT Lives in the Stitch played in Chicago’s Millennium Park Summer Film Series.

The Small Forces documentary short about BT Lives in the Stitch, a knitting program run by Dorothea Tobin at North Lawndale College Prep, was selected to screen as part of the ChicagoMade Shorts Festival.

The Chicago Film Office showcases locally-made short films before each summer film screening at Millennium Park in partnership with ChicagoMade. The ChicagoMade program is part of a collaboration between The City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Choose Chicago, and World Business Chicago.

The film played on August 7, 2018 before the feature presentation: School of Rock.

Dorothea attended the screening along with three graduates of the knitting program, named BT Lives in the Stitch in honor of her late son. 

 The Small Forces team was there too to capture the excitement of the screening.

We are honored to be selected and spread Dorothea’s message of leading with love in charge to a large and local audience.
