Description

The Night Shift is a short gritty slice of life documentary that offers a glimpse into the life of Angelo, a homeless man who collects recycling in order to survive. The film takes place in San Francisco, a city currently dealing with a devastating homelessness epidemic. It follows Angelo through his nightly routine and explores how he has all of the traits of a successful entrepreneur, but makes much less than minimum wage. Even though he is completely destitute, we are confronted by his surprisingly optimistic demeanor, the ins and outs of the underground recycling economy, and the tragic contradiction of a city rife with Tech money yet home to an ever growing homeless population.
