"Someone would have done something"

In this short film entitled "Eulogy/Obverse",  a young filmmaker films a homeless man laying on the street, then discusses how he was really filming people walking by a homeless man laying on the street.  After becoming cold and hungry, he and his friend go to get something to eat and the question arises: was the homeless man dead?  He says "Someone would have done something". This seven minute film raises thought provoking questions about how we distance ourselves from other human beings.
