Gaia Arts Center, 2120 Allston Way @ Shattuck,
Berkeley, CA,

A documentary focused on the political and personal realities of living in San Francisco’s Laguna Honda, the largest nursing home in the U.S. Laguna Honda houses thousands of people living with severe physical disabilities.

Plus, coverage of the ArnieVille Sleep Out, a protest of California’s proposed budget cuts, cuts that could leave many seniors and persons with disabilities homeless or institutionalized. With Syndy Sharp, Hannah Jo Karpilow, Thomas & Nicholas McMullan, & Marissa Shaw.

After a cold night, ArnieVille residents soak in some rays.

We’ve all heard the adage, home sweet home.
It’s that place we long for when we’ve been away where we seek rest, recreation and a break from the outside world.

Nicholas & Thomas McMullan, photo by their dad, DanLeah Gardner and Eddie Ytuarte ask the question:
“What does home mean for people who live with disabilities?”
