For some terrific background on Trickle Down Town, check out Tomasz' Op-Ed in the September 27 issue of Westside Seattle. The film is based on his multiple conversations with folks living in their vehicles along Harbor Avenue in West Seattle. Tomasz writes:
It’s a story about us. It’s a story about Seattle. My hope is that it will provide insight into the complicated world that is homelessness. The people I have gotten to know do not match the typical stereotypes of what most of us think about the homeless. I don’t claim that I have found THE solution to homelessness. There are as many reasons and solutions to the problem as there are people who experience homelessness. But the common connection here is affordable housing for the people who are struggling in this trickle down economy. The common connection is family and community support. The solutions will require all of us ... Making this film changed my view on homelessness forever. I hope it creates a crack in all of us to let the light in.
