Warren

This is Warren, my wild-haired neighbor and self-proclaimed "street captain." He suffered from mental illness, but that didn't stop him from being independent, active, and surprisingly sweet. He suffered a heart attack and died one month after I filmed this short documentary. In talking with his family I discovered that Warren was extremely camera shy. It was more than twenty years since he let anybody take a picture of him. I consider it a great honor that he trusted me enough to let me help share his story.
