Summer 2010 we ran into Christina & Papi on Delaware avenue in the city of Brotherly Love – Philadelphia. By the time we finished talking with them we knew this was an unique story that has to be presented to the world. We stayed with them for 3 days documenting their day to day lives and love for each other. Christina & Papi showed us more of Philadelphia than any tour guide could have. We never knew this other side of Philadelphia existed until this three day Life changing experience. Welcome to Paradise City.
Paradise City shows us an unexposed side of homelessness at a young age, a side that we all should be aware of. We walk & ride past homeless people everyday and wonder how they got there. These questions often lead to our assumptions that they are lazy, trouble makers, or were addicted to drugs. Although this may be true in some cases, we should look at our own reflection and ask ourselves, what addictions do we have? What’s so different in our lives that solidifies our livelihood and luxuries we often take for granted?
This film will serve its purpose to show our generation that no matter what background you come from, how old you are or how much money you have, in a blink of an eye it can all be taken away.
