Trickle Down Town

PRESENTED BY: Meaningful Movies in Wallingford
7:00 PM, Friday, January 4, 2019 PST
Location: Wallingford, Seattle, WA (click for map)

This new film from a Seattle filmmaker, who will attend our screening, takes an up-close look at homelessness in Seattle. There are in-depth interviews with homeless people and visits to local homeless camps, including Camp Second Chance in West Seattle. Also shown are people who are working hard to help their homeless neighbors.

The filmmaker, Tomasz Biernacki, says, “I have discovered that most people have uneducated, knee-jerk reactions and false beliefs . . . about the homeless. They see the tents, the RVs, the addicted people who have untreated mental and physical health issues, and instead of doing something to help their neighbors, they degrade, cast away, and add insult to injury. I want people to see that there are concrete, simple steps people can take every day to help the situation. It’s going to have to be a grassroots effort.”

The filmmaker will attend the screening and answer questions afterward.
Doors open at 6:30 for snacks and conversation. The event is FREE, with a suggested $5 donation to cover expenses.

    I’m hoping concerned citizens pack the place.
