A man walks up to two homeless men and offers them a thanksgiving meal. Viewers pass by and comment on the two casually eating on a sidewalk in front of the Los Angeles Staple Center. A documentary technique crafted with a hand held camera is used to capture the candid moments of these two men and those who passed by. The intentions of this video is not to document a service, but to capture the reactions people had to our “thanksgiving meal.” Nevertheless, it was a gratifying experience.
