In Theatres: HOMME LESS

1201x782-KEY-IMAGE-HOMMELESS_keypic_wide-Thomas-Wirthensohn-400x200Coming to theatres tomorrow, Friday, August 7: HOMME LESS

Thomas Wirthensohn’s portrait of unexpected homelessness debuted at last year’s Film Festival Kitzbuehel, where it won the best doc award. It has gone on to screen at DOC NYC (where it won the Metropolis competition), DocAviv, Sarasota, and Hof.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
From all outside appearances, Mark seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies, and attends the best parties. When he leaves those events, however, he heads to the East Village – not to an overpriced loft, but to a hidden corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. Thomas Wirthensohn exposes the dark underbelly of the American Dream in an often-merciless city.

    Many of us live this way–or have lived this way. Lots of people living in theri cars too. Lucky to even HAVE a job to go to! Residential rents–in cities where the jobs are–are getting higher and higher–jobs and incomes are not keeping up for most people.
