"Gerry Straub is a modern-day Francis, jolting us into the truth by the power of images." — Giacomo Bini, O.F.M., Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor
Drawn by the values and example of Francis of Assisi, filmmaker and author Gerard Straub spent months living among the poor of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Toronto, Rome, Nairobi, Brazil, India, the Philippines and Jamaica. "Armed only with a pen and a 35-mm camera," he listened to their stories, photographing the men, women and children who live desperate lives of poverty and hunger.
When Did I See You Hungry? is a powerful exploration of the desperation and squalor that is the plight of the poor.
