A new film written and directed by Emilio Estevez explores the complicated relationship between libraries and the homeless community. “The Public” centers around the Cincinnati Public Library. As the city experiences a bitter arctic chill homeless library patrons refuse to leave the library at closing time. The story follows the role of the police in negotiations with the homeless, the state prosecutor working in tandem with the police and the news media as they cover the events. The film opens in theaters nationwide on April 5. Here’s an interview with Estevez about the film.
