Signs of Humanity
A documentary that features and is directed by Willie Baronet. Baronet goes on a month-long journey from Seattle, WA to New York, NY to purchase as many signs possible from the homeless. The signs at the end of the film are gathered and used as artwork in an exhibit in hopes to help outsiders understand the many struggles homeless people face each day.
