"Songs From the Street" is a documentary film from Carbon Trace Productions in Springfield, Missouri. It follows the story of the Springfield Street Choir, comprised entirely of homeless members of the community. The homeless and formerly homeless members of the community come together to perform in the Springfield Street Choir to advocate for homeless reform. The general goal of the film is to show audiences that homeless people are just people, they have their own lives and stories, and deserve help just as much as anyone else. The choir aims to help homeless people on an individual level by giving them something enjoyable to do when they barely have anything, while promoting a message to the public to incite local change.
Carbon Trace Productions is a nonprofit organization that has created several documentaries in the past, showcasing important topics such as conflict at the border. The crew of "Songs From the Street" is made up of volunteers and students from Missouri State University.
