Northshore United Church of Christ has a free Meaningful movie monthly available to the general public. The movies are neighborhood film and discussion events covering social justice issues and advocacy.
You are invited to a showing of the documentary: Trickle Down Town.
This new film from a Seattle filmmaker takes an up-close look at homelessness in Seattle. There are in-depth interviews with homeless people and visits to local homeless camps, including Camp Second Chance in West Seattle. Also shown are people who are working hard to help their homeless neighbors.
The filmmaker, Tomasz Biernacki, says, "I have discovered that most people have uneducated, knee-jerk reactions and false beliefs . . . about the homeless. They see the tents, the RVs, the addicted people who have untreated mental and physical health issues, and instead of doing something to help their neighbors, they degrade, cast away, and add insult to injury. I want people to see that there are concrete, simple steps people can take every day to help the situation. It's going to have to be a grassroots effort."
