about a person in the documentary
19 September 2005 | by xcoalchamber666xSee all my reviews

Hi, I am Jani Beck. I am listed as having been homeless and in the documentary on this website. It is true that I am in the documentary, but it is NOT true that I was homeless. I was hanging out with a few of my homeless friends back then, and the people doing this documentary came. They asked us if we wanted to be in it and told us what it was about. I told them right away, that I don't want to be in it because I was NOT homeless. But they said that I should be in it anyway, just as a friend of the homeless, so I thought, okay, why not. As they started filming they went down the line and then came to me. The first question that was asked was "How long have you been homeless for?" I was really confused at first, but then since I did not want to spoil their film, I played along and said "Not long" or something like that. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I was never homeless and in this, by mistake, I believe you could say.
