This is a really powerful video shot with just a cell phone in two cities, NY and Sydney. I think this issue is really rather complicated, nevertheless this video does a good job of removing it (a bit) from the political sphere etc...

Interesting. It doesn't make try to say whether those people are right or wrong for where they are; it only judges our reaction to them. Perhaps what makes it so powerful...along with the neat filming.

yeah that's what I like about it for sure. Its the "who will cast the first stone" mentality that is captivating, because it's so true, I guess. I thought it was awesome how they juxtapose the objective or impersonal reaction, with the personal. That is, they capture the conflict that comes every time one considers the situation or is confronted by it ... actually I just thought of this, but I should have said "should come", it does not always show up that way for everyone I suppose... again, the paradox. Humanity is such a difficult thing, but I think generosity, in whatever form, is the answer... I keep watching it -- kind of like the John Lennon interview... or good movies... Finding Neverland... :) anyway lol..
