Tomasz Biernacki’s new documentary about the homeless crisis in Seattle is a must-see. It deftly interweaves in-depth stories and interviews of community members who are living the crisis on the streets with interviews of political leaders and community advocates, vivid images of the current state of affairs and a poignant examination of the roots of homelessness in the region. Biernacki paints a picture of a city struggling to come to grips with an unprecedented emergency, and finds glimmers of hope.
