When Tent City first opened in April 2011, I was there joining the residents in the sticker patch with a tent of my own – AND I brought a video camera with me. I filmed hundreds of hours of footage – conditions, excursions, interviews, experiences and so forth.
Then I met a young man from LCU who fancied himself a film maker. We collaborated and he produced a short preview for what was intended to be a feature length documentary. He entered the short video in a film contest and took first place!
The film was never completed. But the short video is out there on the web to this day. And I think even in the short piece, the message is clear. I want to see Jesus, so I went looking for him among “The least of these…” on Lubbock’s streets.
I think you might like the video if you saw it, so here is the link:
