Downtown Los Angeles has been a favored filming location since the days of the silent movies. But rarely do filmmakers get a chance to shine a spotlight on people who actually live on its streets, especially in a 50-block area known as skid row. – Richard Verrier, Los Angeles Times

The People

...puts a human face on these so readily dismissed individuals that inhabit the Skid Row area...

The Film

Although its stated purpose is to reduce crime in the area, for many the program is nothing more than officially sanctioned class warfare.

The Filmmakers

Sometimes you just know when something's not right. You see it, or hear it, and you know instinctively there's something missing.


LOST ANGELS - skid row is my home


"Humanistic portrait of Los Angeles' Skid Row"

Narrated by Catherine Keener, LOST ANGELS: SKID ROW IS MY HOME takes an uncompromising yet life-affirming look at the lives of eight remarkable individuals--people who have found a way to make a life for themselves within the community of homelessness. The film shows how their descent into society’s basement has been exacerbated by the forces of gentrification and the increasing criminalization of homeless people, while exposing the draconian changes to the mental health care system that have brought us here.

With the support of a vast array of advocates, especially the services of Lamp Community, the mission featured in the Jamie Foxx/ Robert Downey Jr. film, THE SOLOIST, many residents of Skid Row have found a way to stick together and fight back.

Directed by Thomas Napper, LOST ANGELS demonstrates how proactive approaches to homelessness–most specifically that of providing housing–are helping many to recover from mental illness and substance abuse and to find stability. For many, Skid Row is, perhaps improbably, the last place to find refuge and build a life of meaning…proving that sometimes home is where the help is.

Coming soon to select theaters.
