UPDATE INVISIBLE PEOPLE BY DIRECTOR SUSANNE SUFFREDIN
I've just returned from Albuquerque, New Mexico where we were filming scenes for Kindling Group's feature length documentary Invisible People (working title). We spent time with Mark Horvath, our main character and the organization 100K Homes. We were there for the 100K Homes Boot Camp and Registry Week. The goal of 100K Homes is to find homes for 100,000 of the most vulnerable homeless by July 2013.  We filmed Mark in action on the streets, conducting vulnerability surveys with Albuquerque's homeless population and gathering new interviews for his website. His interview with Paul, which we filmed, is already posted on his site.
