This new film from Seattle filmmaker Tomasz Biernacki takes an up-close look at homelessness in Seattle. There are in-depth interviews with members of the homeless community and visits to local homeless camps, including Camp Second Chance in West Seattle, and also interviews with many Seattleites working hard to help their homeless neighbors.

About the film, 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.”
