  • Homeless Realities Documentary

    We went on a small outing to view our very own Brian Sicurella portrayed in Jovrnalism’s 360 degree documentary, Homeless Realities. The documentary was a surprisngly intimate and beautiful piece of art spotlighting several people who are experiencing homeless in Los Angeles. The spotlighted participants were not only the focus of the documentary, they were also trained on new emerging technology while being involved in the creative side of the project!
