Sept 30 : LEAD ME HOME + PANEL DISCUSSION
The 2022 PROXY Fall Series of outdoor cinema continues on Friday, September 30th at the PROXY Community Walk-in Theater with:
LEAD ME HOME
Directed by Pedro Kos, Jon Shenk, 2021 [PG-13]
“Lead Me Home is a necessary, heartrending piece of art, a vital, poetic examination of the housing crisis and the very real people it affects every day.” – Jade Budowski, Decider
Special panel discussion with the director and San Francisco residents featured in the film.
More than 500,000 people experience homelessness every night in America, with over 7,700 people in San Francisco alone. Lead Me Home presents this epidemic of homelessness in America with a show-don’t-tell approach, featuring candid testimonials from those who rest their heads in shelters, tent cities, and anywhere a night’s sleep can be found. This short film is intentionally a study of contrasts – showing clips of housed individuals against those on the streets – whose basic needs and lives are not so different yet drastically so. An emotional and honest conversation with unhoused residents from San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, presenting a dignified portrait of our culture’s fraying edges and the people who inhabit them.
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm.
