HOW WOULD IT FEEL TO BE HOMELESS? 

A viral short film giving SF's homeless people a megaphone to share their stories.  

Description: San Francisco has a problem, but it's not the city's homeless people. It's the growing disparity between two classes of people, those who're part of the system and those who are left out. The problem is deep and complex and rather than blaming homeless people, I thought that it would be better to listen to them and share their stories.
