A Homeless Story
Taylor’s Campaign, a documentary by filmmaker Richard Cohen, offers a compelling, intimate view into the lives of homeless people in Santa Monica. The film follows Ron Taylor (at left), a homeless, disabled trucker who runs for a seat on the Santa Monica City Council, in part because of proposed city laws prohibiting food donations to the homeless in public places. The 75-minute documentary, which Cohen directed, co-produced, and edited, is narrated by actor Martin Sheen. Videos are $39 for individuals, public libraries, and high schools, $99 for academic libraries, schools, and organizations. Contact Richard Cohen Films, P.O.
