Photography Installation & Documentary Short Film
Facing Homelessness Together
Documentary Film Screening
Friday, January 21, 2022 at 6PM
What started as a photographic storytelling project has evolved into the documentary short film FOG. Directed by DreamWorks editor Michael Pedraza and indie writer James Mihaley, FOG includes original music by Bob Weir and Joe Satriani and will have its exclusive premiere at the SFJAZZ Center at 201 Franklin Street, on Friday, January 21, 2022 at 6:00pm. The event will include a reception and post-screening discussion.
Doctors Outreach and SFJAZZ present a month-long photography installation from Dr. Eduardo Peña Dolhun called “Facing Homelessness Together” in the windows of the San Francisco Unified School District Building across from SFJAZZ Center. The installation will run until January 2022 and is presented in conjunction with the premiere of Dr. Dolhun’s documentary short film FOG at the SFJAZZ Center on Friday, January 21, 2022 at 6PM. FOG tells the stories of people in San Francisco experiencing homelessness and gives an intimate purview into the lives of those that live on the streets and offers the opportunity to get to know that person beyond just walking past a tent on the sidewalk.
Eduardo Peña Dolhun is a Mayo Clinic educated and trained, board-certified family medicine physician and is an internationally recognized Disaster Medicine Physician. He has conducted relief efforts in 13 countries—from devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal to monsoon floods in Pakistan to typhoons in the Philippines. As a novice photographer, Dr. Dolhun saw the human disaster unfolding on the streets of San Francisco and he dedicated his spare time over the past two years to chronicling the stories of more than one-hundred homeless citizens of The City’s Tenderloin neighborhood and Polk Street/Van Ness corridor. With his Leica M10 camera, Dr. Dohun captured people from all walks of life experiencing homelessness during the tragic early days and months of the pandemic. The goal of the project is to bring public awareness of the humanity and humility of people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco and beyond.
