Lost Angels: Skid Row is my Home Trailer (2010)
Trailer for Lost Angels. The film premieres at the Los Angeles Film Festival June 25, 2010. Lost Angels, formerly The Chorus Directed By: Thomas Napper Producer: Agi Orsi Executive Producers: Gary Foster, Joe Wright, Susan Klos Writer: Christine Triano Narrated by: Catherine Keener Director Thomas Napper's empathetic, but tough-minded documentary invites us into a part of Los Angeles that many choose to ignore—downtown's Skid Row. As we meet the distressed area's residents, including a former Olympic runner, a transgendered punk rocker, and an eccentric animal lover and her devoted companion, their remarkable stories paint a multifaceted portrait of life on the streets. There are undeniable problems—mental illness and addiction are common themes—but there is also hope and a surprising sense of community. Passionate, polemical, and generous in spirit, Lost Angels finds a unique vitality to life on Skid Row and a stirring humanity in those who live there.
