Trailer for The Neighbours Project documentary film. We interviewed 30 Denver homeless to share their stories. This is a small part of a greater project to directly help these 30 people and the St Francis Center. We also produced a book of their stories along with their portraits using the wet plate collodion process from the late 1800's
We set out to create something that connects those who need help with those who want to help. There are lots of people who want to help but have no idea if their quarter will make a difference.
This project creates a transparency so you know where your assistance is going, and that it is really helping. It will help provide new furniture, or a couple nights away from the shelter to rest and not be kicked out at 5am. We feel an inherent urge to help our neighbors, and these people are our neighbors. So we started The Neighbours Project.
