the project

Right now, the Sacramento homeless community is in crisis -- from sweeps, a lack of resources, and an unjust system. A recent report found that there are now more homeless people in Sacramento than in San Francisco.

Bright Coast Productions & Jolie Media are teaming up to produce a documentary about this crisis. The two of us Nick Anderson & Ian Lee are a team consisting of a local filmmaker & a progressive union organizer who understand Sacramento's history and have a vested interest in seeing the situation improve.

the steps

We must educate & activate the larger Sacramento community around this crisis. 

We plan to speak to and interview a wide range of people including politicians, academics, nonprofits, and of course those who are experiencing homelessness firsthand. We plan on hiring a film crew to professionally produce & edit our film.

At the end of this project, we plan to host public viewings of our documentary.

why we're doing it

Democracy is not a spectator sport. Our institutions only act when there is public consensus and public pressure to act.

We wish to activate the larger Sacramento community around this crisis.

We just finished another draft of "The Invisible Homeless"!

We've captured some powerful stories, and we can't wait to screen the movie for you.
