There is this pretty damn good doc about this street kid with an enigmatic personality (Dylan). Filmed by a Chinese immigrant chick (her name is Nanfu which i am slightly jealous of) who lives the homeless lifestyle in order to film the realities of the life. She follows his struggles and progression for a few years. It shows both the romance and the hard reality of living a home-free lifestyle. Here is a link to the trailor which explains it better than I can . You can catch on PBS independent lens in full here http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/videos/i-am-another-you/

God this looks incredible! Any idea where I can stream it?
It's on Kanopy! You might have to search 'Kanopy' and then enter the name in the search bar, but Kanopy is a free website where all you need is a library card, then you get 5 free credits to watch any video each month.

BEWARE: Once you click play, even on a short, it costs a credit. Movies without an older rating/in the kids section might not cost a credit anymore? I have yet to test this further though.

Many libraries are offering temporary online cards since they've closed down (at least in NJ I've seen signs about this), so that might be a route to take to access the movie. Some libraries have different movies, so it's possible you won't have access to it depending on the county, but there's a good chance you still might anyway.

Good looking out! I'll look into it. Thank you!

@Tengu91 No problem! Kanopy is great for documentaries in general, and it's how I made it through a few classes (while I was still in college) without having to shell out even more money to watch required media at home.

There are also some classic/contemporary movies on there as well as additional documentaries on niche subjects that are well worth the watch if you don't mind a little digging. =)

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$30.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $30.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $30.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $30.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $30.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
