Lost Angels: Skid Row Is My Home
Los Angeles's Skid Row is home to one of the largest homeless populations in the United States. The documentary film Â“LOST ANGELSÂ” chronicles the lives of the people who call this area of downtown LA home.
Â“LOST ANGELS' director Thomas Napper has grown to know many residents of Skid Row through his work on the feature film The Soloist. Not only were hundreds of homeless people cast as extras for the film, many found work in production jobs as well.
We reflect the camaraderie, compassion, and humor that help create the Skid RowÂ’s unique sense of community.
We meet the Skid Row residents and professionals and through them, the greater context of homelessness in Los Angeles and what it takes to help such a diverse population connect with much-needed services, work, and permanent housing.
