Introduction to the screening by director Paul Crane

Reception at the Moonrise Hotel's The Twilight Room directly following the

Paul Crane's compelling documentary follows five homeless residents of "tent
city" (Wulf, Bonnie, Dave, Jeff and Blake) as they struggle to survive in
tents under harsh conditions, and the five independent volunteers (Eric,
Catherine, Mark and Stephanie) whose lives change as they become deeply
involved helping the homeless residents.

In January 2010, Crane discovered a tent city along the Mississippi River in his hometown of St. Louis. Curious about the residents and what life was like for them each day, he decided to spend a few weeks there volunteering and getting to know them.  Eventually allowed to shoot video of his experience, he quickly realized though that if he wanted to truly capture the full reality of their collective and individual existence, he would need to live there full time...so he moved in with them.

More on EntSun News
Engaging, thoughtful, and deeply human, "Living In Tents" is not just a film
about individuals struggling to survive in a city of tents, it is about the
struggle to live life, the power of personal relationships, and the hope and
strength of those who never quit.

In lieu of charging admission for the preview, the filmmaker is accepting
donations for All Among Us, which builds meaningful relationships with the
chronically homeless, single moms, and their children by providing care,
love and dignity. All Among Us was founded by Cathryn Shaw who is a featured
volunteer in the documentary.
