The Volunteer

Sunday, November 30 screening will have filmmaker introduction.


Writer/director Jonathan Steckley makes his narrative feature debut with THE VOLUNTEER, a beautifully subtle and naturalistic film that focuses on loss and the importance of friendship.

A kind-hearted twenty-something youth worker, Ken (Ken C. Ogasawara) struggles with being a stranger in a new town, battling loneliness and searching for new meaning in his life. He spends his days working at an underfunded youth center, befriending his co-worker Cheryl (Cheryl Lee) and her boyfriend, Matt (Andrew Cherry). At the same time, Ken finds himself being drawn into an ill-advised relationship with the family of a young teenager, Amy (Kaity Adam) and dealing with her broken father Rick (Theodore Bouloukos) and mercurial step-mother Becky (Myra Segal). Ken’s new world only gets messier the deeper he gets involved in their lives, making it hard for him to distinguish right from wrong.
