On Friday at 6:30 pm we will be screening “Bum’s Paradise”, a documentary about the Albany Bulb, outside the Sierra Club’s bi-monthly “Green Friday” event. The Sierra Club is pushing a project on the land that would result in the eviction of the Bulb’s 60+ residents. Our screening will demonstrate to the Sierra Club that there is public support for the continued existence of the Bulb.
Food will be provided but bring blankets, folding chairs, mats, and warm clothing to stay warm!
“Bums’ Paradise is a 53-minute documentary that depicts the lives of the men and women who lived in the ten-year-old Albany Landfill community prior to their eviction. It follows them through the eviction and documents them one month after the eviction. The film emphasizes their concepts of community as well as the amazing art that they created. Instead of being a documentary about homelessness, Bums’ Paradise considers the question: What if the homeless — the indigent, the bums — told their own stories?”
