SIGNS OF HUMANITY
[SIGNS OF HUMANITY]
Event description: In person, film screening and director’s talk
Signs of Humanity is a documentary film that explores interrelated themes of home, homelessness, compassion, and humanity. Willie Baronet has purchased more than 2,000 homeless signs over the past twenty-seven years. He uses this collection to create installations to raise awareness about homelessness. During the month of July 2014, Willie and three filmmakers drove across the country, interviewing more than 100 people on the streets and purchasing over 280 signs. Signs of Humanity is a film about that trip.
