Best Writer - ACU FilmFest


This is a short film I wrote, directed, and edited in the Spring of 2021. It premiered at the ACU Film Festival where it won Best Writer. I originally came up with the idea while watching interviews with homeless individuals on YouTube and started thinking about the different prejudices people carry into interactions with the homeless. As a result, I started researching about the difficulties homeless people face and how many well-meaning policies are actually harmful. It weighed upon my heart to write a screenplay to highlight some of these issues. This film is really just a single scene of the interaction between a businessman and a panhandler, and I wanted to write a story where both characters have noble intent, but they need to overcome their prejudices in order to get what they want and help each other out.
