In the 1970s Lisle Hebert made a film called “Henry’s Movie” about his friend Henry Lang, a homeless town drunk. Hebert said Lang later joked about being a movie star and affectionately called Hebert thereafter, “the director.”
Forty years later, homelessness remains an issue for Hebert. Hebert is convinced our current method of handling the mentally ill, alcoholism, and homelessness doesn’t work. He believes our system of punishing people already on the ropes makes no sense.
