HOME IS A HOTEL Selected for Austin Film Festival and San Diego Asian Film Festival.
There is not a more important or timely film...
Home Is a Hotel is essential viewing
A composite portrait of life on the margins in the most expensive city in the country.
Filmed over 5 years, this feature-length documentary looks at inequality in San Francisco through the lens of five residents as they fight to stay housed. The film features a mosaic of strangers bound together by their reliance on this system of Single Room Occupancy hotels to keep a roof over their heads and homelessness at bay.
While their stories are unique, their attempts to break free of cyclical traumas and crushing structural forces is a universal story whose outcome will foretell the future of the American city.
The screening at the Roxie was such a huge success that they’ve decided to add another date for those that were unable to attend our sold-out screening 6:30 PM, Monday August 28th.
In elevating the stories of those living in SROs, we hope to change the narrative about housing insecurity and build support for investments in community fortifying and health promoting housing that is affordable. We challenge audiences to re-imagine housing as a fulcrum issue, an essential human need and a foundational part of the solution to so many social issues.
Help us bring this powerful film to audiences across the country to act as a tool for community building and organizing through screenings and an impact campaign.
