“Living in Tents” explores homelessness in St. Louis, offering an intimate portrait of a half-dozen or so homeless men and women, and providing a wider view of the issue by interviewing several long-term volunteers and the city officials and professionals who set and implement policy. Although the film is clearly sympathetic to its subjects, it also honestly includes incidents of the self-sabotaging behavior that results from the addiction and mental-health problems that afflict many of the homeless.
