HOMELESS DIARIES is a video jour­ney into Tent City, a camp built by home­less orga­niz­ers and home­less people from Puerto Rico on an empty Philadel­phia lot in 1995. Negrón-Muntan­er inter­weaves video, home movies, images of chil­dren living in Tent City and main­stream cov­er­age of the city.

It’s a mul­ti­lay­ered explo­ration of how dif­fer­ent media rep­re­sent dis­place­ment and social movements.
