That moment when you realize that all of your classmates are watching the film that you created. Humbling and nervous as a room full of colleagues observe this project and give input. Fortunately the project was well received and the input was inspiring and gracious. I’m very excited about how the film, Time To Listen will impact the issue of homelessness.
Your turn: That moment when….
Time To Listen is a 15 minute film focusing on the stories of six different homeless individuals and how they navigate life. Weather it’s the economy, substance abuse, poor decisions, health issues, mental illness, chronic homelessness, or life change. Whatever causes homelessness…these six individuals are opening up and sharing about how they became homeless, what it feels like to be homeless, and how they would like you to see them.
Time To Listen is created to introduce issues of homelessness and start a conversation in your group. There is an accompanying discussion guide to help facilitate your group discussion. This film intentionally does not suggest specific solutions. It’s up to your group to discuss the stories from the film, face your own biases toward homelessness, and determine how you will personally get involved in your community.
