Cinema Libre Studio has acquired the rights to “The Advocates,” Rémi Kessler’s documentary focusing on the growing homeless crisis in Los Angeles.
The acquisition comes as the film had its world premiere last week at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
The film centers on both the historic and current causes of L.A.’s rising homeless crisis and the advocates working to house them, and features the campaign to pass Measure H which Los Angeles County voters eventually approved in March 2017.
Measure H approved a sales tax increase aimed to generate about $355 million a year for homeless services and programs.
The county estimates as many as 58,000 people are homeless on a given night.
