What’s the difference between us and homeless people? Not as much as we think! We are all the same. Don’t let difference define us. That is what Filmmaker Tyler Bridges are teaching us after showing the wonderful transformation of homeless men after being shaved and getting a fresh haircut.
But it´s not just about a new haircut – it´s about spreading hope and raising awareness about the way we perceive homeless people.
We tend to face homeless people almost as monsters, avoiding and all contact with them. The video is trying to encourage us to do better, to show more respect and sympathy – to help them to retrieve their dignity!
WE ARE ALL HUMANS
After receiving a trim, the video shows us that we could be one of them – we don´t look different.
Bridges says, “one of the homeless men in the video was crying after seeing his transformation”. When he looked into the mirror, it was like he remembered who he was before he lived as a homeless person – when he had a normal life like you and I.
“Our video had two goals,” explains Bridges. “One was to humanize what it is to be homeless, and the other was to raise awareness of what you can do to get involved.”
