DIRECTOR: HUGH GIBSON
Q&A with director Hugh Gibson and Hiawatha Collins of Harm Reduction Coalition, moderated by Vadim Rizov.
The Stairs tells the story of Marty, Greg and Roxanne, who each survived decades of street-involvement. Using their experiences to ease the paths of others, they perform social work in their old neighborhood, while struggling to maintain their newly-found stability. Told over five years, The Stairs examines life on society’s margins. Defying stereotypes through intimate portraits, its remarkable subjects are surprising, funny, shocking and moving.
