Theme: The Right To Sleep

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND
Preview of Out of Sight Out of Mind
(Brent Adams, 2017, 15 min, California)

Adams visited 17 cities in Central and Southern California, video-interviewing more than 100 people on his tour of the West Coast, investigating homelessness and homeless camps. On-camera interviews focus on the lived experience of people who sleep outside in cities that are unaware of the scope of the problem. People who have nothing are often willing to give everything.

FREEDOM SLEEPERS
(Israel Dawson, 2016, 20 min, Santa Cruz)

When the shelter closed its emergency services in 2015, Dawson spent a year following the Tuesday night sleep protests at City Hall. He highlights the cruel and unusual punishment of the anti-sleeping law in Santa Cruz and the resistance of the homeless and their supporters to bring an end to the sleeping ban.

HOLDING OUT
(Rebecca Gourevitch, 2016, 20 min, San Francisco)

With an eviction crisis reaching epic proportions in San Francisco, the city's tenants must navigate changing landscapes and communities. The film questions the relationship between developers and City Hall, exposing what is at stake, and who stands to lose, in the city's quest to assert its role as tech's capital.

Speakers: Keith McHenry, co-founder of Food Not Bombs; Brent Adams, filmmaker; Rebecca Gourevitch, filmmaker
Event Sponsor: Common Ground Center at Kresge
