Powerful film blog about homelessness
16 August 2015 | by sibille-21-169223See all my reviews

I had the pleasure to watch this powerful short film with a big message made with much heart and talent, at a movie theatre in Bavaria, where the filmmaker screened a number of her short films. The images and statements of the homeless people who live right outside the White House in Washington D.C., hence the title- were quite moving. The filmmaker, Marianne Hettinger steps into the background and lets those people speak for themselves. What is frightening, is the fact that so many Americans are just a paycheck away from being homeless and you get the feel that it could happen to you if the cards were unfavorably dealt. The film manages to humanize and give faces to the alarmingly high numbers of homeless people in the US, we find out more about the 5 subjects and get a very intimate and close up view- Bravo to the filmmakers to make this important film!I wish it had been a feature!
