Malaria is a short film that depicts the downfall of an ordinary hard-working US citizen, who loses his job, is bitten by a mosquito, and descends into a fever and sickness. While being ignored by those surrounding him and finding himself in the darkest of places, this citizen’s journey ultimately leads to him with no other option than to live in the streets – houseless. It is a metaphor showing how quickly and unexpectedly, one small event can be catastrophic. As filmmakers, we learned a lot from making this film, so we decided to create a campaign – #houselessnothomeless. With this campaign, we aim to dig into the collective consciousness and bring awareness to the homeless crisis in Los Angeles, currently one of the most pressing issues in the City.
