Storyline

"Under the Bridge: The Criminalization of Homelessness" is a documentary film about one summer in Indianapolis, a tent city under a bridge, a man named Maurice, and the criminalization of homelessness in the United States. The unofficial "mayor" of the Davidson St. camp, Maurice is an older, dreadlocked Black man who has dropped out of "normal" society to minister to the homeless. His camp under a railroad track becomes a real community, supported by church volunteers, until police and bulldozers close in to shut it down.

User Reviews

 
Typical story told by folks who want someone else to take care of the problem.
2 April 2019 | by nitestar95See all my reviews

The basic theme for this documentary is, 'someone' should take care of the homeless. But none of the folks who made the documentary actually help these homeless people; it's always 'let someone else do it', or, 'why doesn't the government do it'. Never once, do the interviewers say that they'd be willing to pay additional taxes to create a place for the homeless to live in. Nor do they offer up their own backyards for the homeless to live in.

It's always, 'Let someone else do it'.
