RED BUTTON pushes the boundaries of unscripted storytelling. In this bold and innovative series, documentary subjects become filmmakers. Homeless youth were given small cameras and offered a workshop to learn the basics of filmmaking. Then they captured their world from the inside and their footage was cut into episodes that offer intimate perspectives on homelessness. It’s a new approach to documentary filmmaking that gives voice to cultures and communities we don’t often hear from firsthand.
