How invisible have the homeless become? Will you recognize your loved ones if they were dressed up like a homeless person?
New York City Rescue Mission issued a hidden challenge to several people, and shockingly, not one person identified their family members.
“There’s only one person that didn’t make it into the film — because they couldn’t handle the fact that they walked by their family,” director Jun Diaz recounted. “It happened every time.”
“The experiment is a powerful reminder that the homeless are people, just like us, with one exception, they are in trouble and in pain.” added Craig Mayes, executive director of NYC Rescue Mission. “And they are someone’s uncle or cousin or wife.”
