ON THE STREETS — a feature documentary on homelessness in L.A.

‘On the Streets’ is a 12-part video series about homelessness in Los Angeles. Journalist and filmmaker Lisa Biagiotti tackles this complex issue by putting faces to the statistics.

She starts by following The L.A.Times’ homeless data map, and sets out to have conversations with people who do not have homes. Since October, Biagiotti has been learning about their varied experiences and connecting their stories to larger issues. Along the way, she gains input and insights from Angelenos.

The series concept is to build a dynamic documentary scene-by-scene with our audience. Thank you for participating and helping us tell this story.

  1. This is ridiculous. I feel like what needs to happen is a consistent building of low income units to house the homeless over decades while maintaining services to keep the homeless people down. As more units get built, fill them with homeless and help them get off the street. This will take a long time, but I feel like this is the only way. Homeless shelters should also be made tall so that you don't have to keep buying more land to build two story buildings that only have 20 units. Make them 10 or 12 stories tall and provide housing and services to hundreds of people in one building. That way people know where the services are.

  2. I notice every time we vote we continue being fucked if y'all want life to change than stay your ass away from the voting poll.. I say its time to show the Goverment that we are the power and it will rock America to its core.. No more Dem or Rep they can't do shit the correct way for all..

  3. "youre my neighbor. I wont help you not be homeless but you can have some aluminum cans. Ill see you in the alley! hahahaaaa"

  4. Some one bought the property underneath slab city, really? Who would do that? Are they trying to make an amusement park out of it?

  5. The reporter is so damn annoying. Doesn't seem like she cares at all about the people she's covering. Like why is she so enthusiastic about their homelessness? And why does she follow Jesus to the homeless shelter to confront him about the guy who died last week? Fucking lingerer. Let me just follow this poor dude and put him in the most uncomfortable situation for some good footage. She's all about her damn story. Super bubbly and smiling all the time about such a depressing subject. Her demeanor about this serious problem is disgusting. Does she have any self-awareness or any empathy for the people she is covering?? As I continue to write this, she continues to smile and laugh at people's stories of adversity. I'm done with her

  6. I just got evicted from my apartment because these Arriba apartments in San Antonio Texas don't think it important to replace worn out electrical receptacles. I have some flashing of light and crackling of bulbs and then outlets and bulbs not working. Another outlet just stopped working. Now I have one tight outlet left in the whole apartment not counting the kitchen.
    Rather than hire an electrician, they are evicting the renter. Does that make sense?
    I thought I wanted to live in San Francisco or Venice beach, but not with so many homeless. Just in case somebody there needs a roommate, I will be out of this apartment August 31, 2017. Would like to live in apartment in Venice Beach because that is where all the artists live. Right?

  7. Watch: "This LA Musician Built $1,200 Tiny Houses for the Homeless. Then the City Seized Them." right here on YouTube.
    "Wouldn't it be better for the human spirit and for the soul of this nation to encourage people to accept more responsibililty to care for each other rather than leaving those tasks to paid bureaucrates?" — Ronald Reagan

  8. The host is extremely biased. She made a couple of the homeless and working poor feel uncomfortable. She should focus on reporting rather than judging.

  9. People in RV's are homeless? I thought an RV was a type of mobile home in America. At least that is how it is portrayed on tv.

  10. At 32:00 that cop is cool. It is good that those poor people have a cop with the spirit of God inside of him keeping the chaos fair. God himself is in that man looking out for them all.
