After the death of her friend Robin Williams, comedian Margaret Cho took to the streets with the mantra “Don’t grieve Robin, BE Robin.” What started as Margaret busking on the corner with a bag of socks and a guitar case, rapidly turned into hundreds of musicians, comedians, and homeless advocates spreading food, clothes, money and awareness in an amazing humanitarian street theater experience.  The result is this entertaining documentary that not only captures the events, but shares a deeply moving and inspiring story. -Chris Metzler

Plays with:  SILVER DOGS, Erin Drake-Prior, 18 min.

Description

This short documentary focuses on the life of Josh Spencer, owner and operator of “The Last Bookstore”, located in Downtown Los Angeles.
