Hotel 22: Short Film Review

Hotel 22 is a eight-minute-long short documentary by Elizabeth Lo. The film explores a side of California Bay area that isn’t talked about very often – the alarming conditions of the homeless in the neighborhood. 

22 is a 24-hr bus that the homeless board for the night to get shelter. After a couple of local news channels caught hold of the story, Lo decided to bring it to people’s notice with this documentary. It has been shot over a period of six days but made to look like a single night. The film has homeless people and their every night rides on this mobile hotel. It offers a compassionate insight into the lives of the homeless, their struggles and how the humongous offices of tech-giants in the same area (Google and Facebook) stand in stark contrast to their living conditions. 
The documentary has an observational approach to it and at times you feel a little too detached from the subject. Of course, when the motive is right, the audience finds a way to appreciate the work. The documentary has received acclaim from NY Times’ prestigious Op/Docs programming strand and continues to be lauded in the  policy circles of the area with concerns of lack of shelter for the homeless being highlighted.
