Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard Presents “Under the Bridge: The Criminalization of Homelessness”
Jan 29 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

“Under the Bridge: The Criminalization of Homelessness” is a documentary film about one summer in Indianapolis, a tent city under a bridge, a man named Maurice, and the criminalization of homelessness in the United States. The unofficial “mayor” of the Davidson Street camp, Maurice is an older, dreadlocked man who has dropped out of “normal” society to minister to the homeless. His camp under a railroad track becomes a real community, supported by church volunteers, until police and bulldozers close in to shut it down.

Directed by: Don Sawyer & Sam Mirpoorian
Written by: Stephen Talbot, John MacGibbon, & Don Sawyer

We invite you to arrive early to enjoy Happy Hour pricing of 25% off all items on Royal Drummer’s regular menu.
