PACER Center to host documentary screening

PACER Center of Bloomington will host a screening and discussion of a documentary film next week.

The screening of “Who Cares About Kelsey?” by filmmaker Dan Habib begins 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 27, at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd.

The film tells the story of Kelsey Carroll, a student whose goal is to graduate from high school but has plenty of reasons why she shouldn’t. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse and ADHD.

As a freshman, she didn’t earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. Initially a defiant and disruptive problem student, she becomes a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age.
