At Night, This Bus Doubles As a Homeless Shelter | Short Film Showcase

Line 22 is the only bus route that runs 24 hours a day in Silicon Valley. At night, homeless people have made it their informal shelter in an effort to avoid sleeping on the street. This situation is in stark contrast with the image filmmaker Elizabeth Lo had of Silicon Valley, which is why, in the course of a week, she joined them on the bus line. “Hotel 22” is a poignant Op-Doc video that captures a crude reality of homelessness that may have gone unseen.
