This film from a Seattle filmmaker 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.”

As always, no tickets are required; donations are gratefully accepted to cover our costs.

Special Guests: Tomasz Biernacki, Director of the film, will attend our event and lead the facilitated discussion following the showing.
