HOTEL 22

Directed by
Elizabeth Lo

A Sillicon Valley night bus becomes a makeshift shelter for the homeless.

Elizabeth Lo, a documentary filmmaker based in California, was a student at nearby Stanford university when she heard the story of local homeless people using the bus route 22 that circled the Sillicon Valley over night.

To prepare for her short documentary, she took the bus route over several weeks so the regular riders get used to her, her camera and project. She rode the bus recording for a week and edited the footage to represent one composite, dramatic night. The resulting film provides a quiet observation of the nation's inequalities that often go unseen.
