What are people saying?

  • Jason's rating of the film The Stairs

    THE STAIRS is essentially a documentary about a disparate assortment of individuals struggling w/ addiction, chronic homelessness, years in the sex trade, or combinations of these, who might be said to be emblematic of the harm reduction approach to managing such struggles. What distinguishes the film is the personalities. Indeed, extraordinary people on the margins often star in extraordinary unrevealed stories.
