I’m Christopher F. Rufo: filmmaker, writer, and policy researcher. I document the phenomena of poverty, addiction, crime, and other afflictions.
TACKLING THE HOMELESSNESS CRISIS
I’m currently working on a series of articles, films, and policy papers to address homelessness in America’s West Coast cities. In my view, homelessness is not primarily a housing crisis, but a human crisis that involves addiction, mental illness, and the collapse of family.
I’ve written a policy paper to help small and medium-sized cities dramatically reduce street camping, drug consumption, and public disorder within 60 days.
“AMERICA LOST” DOCUMENTARY
America Lost is a feature-length documentary that explores life in three “forgotten American cities”—Youngstown, Ohio, Memphis, Tennessee, and Stockton, California.
The film reveals the dramatic decline of the American interior through a combination of emotional personal stories and thoughtful conservative commentary. Ultimately, despite these grave challenges, the film offers a glimpse of hope for rebuilding America’s families and communities from the bottom up.
