2016 / United States / 45min

In Long Story Short, over 100 people at homeless shelters, food banks, adult literacy programs, and job training centers in Los Angeles and the Bay Area in Northern California discuss their experiences of poverty – why they are poor, how it feels, and what they think should be done. Numerous interviews are stitched together to form a polyphonic account of poverty from the inside.

Long Story Short uses the tools and aesthetic forms of the sharing economy to amplify the voices of those most displaced and dispossessed by it. While individuals filmed in separate spaces appear in isolation, mirroring the isolating aspects of the media forms it appropriates, words flow across the screen like musical ensemble, a imaginary collective yet to materialize.
