Abstract: Despite the increased recognition of older adult homelessness in research, policy, and practice, few studies have considered the potential to co-produce knowledge using community-based participatory research (CBPR) filmmaking with older adults with homeless histories. This project redresses this gap. Using walk along and drive along interviews the documentary focused on the older adults’ experiences of finding home after homelessness. In this article we offer insights into the tensions revealed in CBPR filmmaking and share reflections of social work students regarding their experiences working on this project. We offer recommendations for educators to enhance students’ competencies and interests regarding the fields of homelessness and aging and for researchers who may be interested in engaging older adults in CBPR filmmaking.
