Human Rights Film Festival: The Shelter


We’re co-presenting The Shelter at the 5th Annual Human Rights Festival.

A poignant documentary about homelessness in Switzerland, “The Shelter” alternates between nights at “The Bunker,” a shelter in Lausanne, and stories of homeless individuals and families in this Swiss city. These threads weave together to show the practical and every-day challenges of both running a shelter as well as living without employment or a home; together, they also reveal the very real human side of the social issue of homelessness.

Screening with:
