Netflix debuted the official trailer for Lead Me Home, the documentary short film by Jon Shenk and Pedro Kos that captures the homeless experience.
Filmed over three years in three cities – San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle – that face seemingly intractable circumstances involving large populations of unhoused people, this mid-length film uses evocative visuals and powerful individual stories to show that a problem with manifold causes needs manifold solutions.
Lead Me Home premiered at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival and arrives on Netflix on November 30, 2021.
500,000 Americans experience homelessness every night. Lead Me Home is a documentary short by Jon Shenk and Pedro Kos that captures the experience from multiple perspectives. This immersive, cinematic film personalizes the overwhelming issue by telling the real-life stories of those going through it as a first step toward challenging uninformed attitudes and outmoded policies and gives the audience a rare, in-depth look at the scale, scope and diversity of unsheltered America today.
