Long Story Short presents personal stories from hundreds of people living in poverty in the United States.
Long Story Short, a documentary from Natalie Bookchin, aims to humanize the issue of poverty in America by encouraging people to share their own stories. Most Americans misunderstand the causes and characteristics of poverty their country, even though nearly one third of the country’s population fits into that category. It’s an issue that gets little attention in the press but still affects the lives of millions of Americans. Long Story Short seeks to set the record straight and raise up the voices of those living in poverty every day.
