» » The Eviction (2017)

Short summary

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free." Simple lines of a simple truth. But how do some react when those huddled masses threaten property values. "The Eviction" documents how Dallas dealt with a curious question: How does one evict the homeless? On May 3, 2016, the City of Dallas forcefully evicted a homeless encampment. It numbered in the hundreds. It was cloistered in a five block sliver beneath a highway overpass near downtown. It even had its own name: "Tent City." Utilizing a cinema-verite style inspired by Robert Drew, award winning documentary director Andy Galloway traces the final month of the encampment. Interviews ranging from the observers, the actors, and those trying to bring a resolution examine the complexity of the social reality of the homeless and homelessness.
