In 2011, Stephen McCoy set out to make a documentary film about homeless people and addicts in downtown Boston, people he labeled “Nightcrawlers.” Using his Hi8 camcorder, he filmed everything he experienced. And now, after his five year journey, he’s homeless and addicted to heroin. NIGHTCRAWLERS chronicles his journey and metamorphosis from artist and documentarian to subject of his own cautionary tale. Curated from almost 80 hours of his personal tapes, this intoxicating video diary gives a glimpse into a post-financial crisis America, a place of fear, paranoia, and poverty that drew the filmmaker into its dark underbelly and never let go.
