A Year of Change Arika Michaelis, Executive Director The Toledo Streets Editorial Team originally created January’s theme “A Year of Change” with the typical New Year’s resolutions and refl ections in mind. It seems every year there are varying conversation points either supporting or opposing New Year’s resolutions. On one hand, a brand-new year is seen as an ideal time to implement healthy habits and set goals that feel accomplishable within 12 months. On the other hand, why bother trying to become a new person overnight? Personally, I enjoy ringing in the New Year refl ecting on and celebrating the growth I’ve made over the last year. Then I consider what I might like the upcoming year to look like and set broad intentions from there. My intentions this year sound like “practice providing more space and grace for myself and people I love," “prioritize time for creativity," and “discover new ways to nourish my mind and body”. It is not lost on me that this theme comes at a very ironic time for both Toledo Streets and me. For those who don’t know: I am transitioning out of my role as Director of Toledo Streets Newspaper. The last two years at TSN have been some of the most infl uential, challenging, and exciting years of my life. And I would do it all over again, if given the opportunity. I sound like a broken record at this point, but I know for a fact that Toledo Streets meets people where they are, lifts them up and encourages them through their journey. That’s what we witness every day with our vendors and that’s what has happened for me. When I started at Toledo Streets Newspaper, I was met with a community that immediately welcomed me in. The staff, board and vendors created a space for me to learn on my feet. As time went on, I received advice and praise, respectfully. Other leaders working in the community provided me mentorship, guidance, and opportunities. And everything that I received from the community, I poured right back into it. This dynamic, the give and take of Toledo Streets’ community, is the reason Toledo Streets existed well before me and will continue long after I am gone. People fi nd a place of belonging here. They are loved for who they are and inspired to be better. I am grateful for all the people I have met and the lessons I have learned the last two years. And I am excited for the future of Toledo Streets Newspaper! To 2022 - A Year of Intention. A Year of Growth. A Year of Change. The Buck Starts Here Toledo Streets and its vendors are a powerful, community driven solution to the problem of homelessness. Our vendors earn their way out of their individual situations through a collaboration of journalism, local business partners and their own hard work. Use these four steps to be a part of the solution. Meet Vendors Buy a Paper Get Informed Take Action • Vendors -- the people who sell the paper -- are at the core of Toledo Streets' mission. Each year more than 70 indiviuals work as vendors with Toledo Streets. At any given time, more than 25 vendors are at work, in the rain, snow, or heat. Vendors play an active role in the management of TS, meeting regularly to discuss issues of concern and even serving on our board. • With the money made selling the newspaper, vendors are able to secure basic needs, independence and dignity, and work toward obtaining housing. Vendors buy papers for a quarter and sell them for a $1, keeping all income and tips for each sale. Toledo Streets tries to tie its editorial to three basic principals: • Inspiring Hope, Fostering Community, and Cultivating Change. We are a member of INSP, our global organization of street papers around the world which provides us with content relevent to social justice, homelessness, and street community around the world. • Donate to the organization and give vendors experiencing homelessness and poverty a hand up. It supports not only the paper but also issues throughout NW Ohio. • Volunteer your time and expertise and help the organization grow. • Share Toledo Streets with your network, and tell people about the organization.

February – Black History Month Toledo Streets Newspaper – 2022 Editorial Themes Many of these months are titled simply with a word or phrase that encapsulates the direction of the proposed theme. They are “working titles” and will likely be replaced with something more headline-worthy closer to their publication date. The theme will remain the same. Under each month and title, you will fi nd a brief, intentionally vague description informing the direction of the publication. While we will plan a majority of the content for each issue to surround the chosen themes, articles and content not theme-oriented will still be considered for print. January – A Year of Change We are looking at the year ahead, 2022. Anything that fi ts within the concept of progression or change - social justice, government policies, local community/ neighborhood changes... etc. This special edition of Toledo Streets Newspaper honors and celebrates Black Americans. February is Black History Month, an annual observance made offi cial in 1976 by U.S. President Gerald Ford to “honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” TSN aims to lift individuals’ voices through our publication and this month is no different. This theme is dedicated entirely to Black history including adversity, achievements, and identity. March – Women’s History Month March is Women’s History Month, an observance and celebration of the vital role of women in our communities, history, and contemporary representation. This issue will honor local, national and historical women that make our world go round! April – Sustainability/Earth Month Each year, Earth Day lands on April 22. This year, TSN is dedicating an entire publication to the world’s largest environmental movement. As our climate crisis grows, so should our awareness of how we, as individuals, organizations, and corporations, play a role and what we can do to take better care of our planet! In this issue, we will highlight local sustainability movements and activism, content on environmentalism across social classes, and more! May – Youths Our youth are our future! This issue is intended to celebrate extraordinary happenings among the young people in our world and right here in Toledo! TSN will also spotlight events, clubs, and classes young people can engage in during the warmer months. June – Social Justice Awareness While deciding the themes for the yearly editorial calendar, TSN considers annual observances, holidays, and celebrations within each month. June hosts Pride Month, Juneteenth, Father’s Day, World Refugee Day, and Constitution Day. Instead of choosing one of these important dates to theme an entire issue, TSN is giving space to all of them – among other social justice issues that need a platform and audience. July – Independence The United States’ Independence Day is celebrated in July. Let freedom ring, right? But how do we defi ne “independence” and “freedom”? This issue will take a closer look at what independence and freedom mean for individuals from various life experiences. Those who are hoping to attain citizenship in the US, have been incarcerated, live with a disability or are too young to vote may defi ne these concepts differently. August – Education (Post-Secondary) In 2021, Toledo Streets themed a publication with the same name spotlighting schools K-12 in Toledo. This year, TSN is dedicating an issue to Toledo’s Post-Secondary options: Colleges, trade schools, or apprenticeships. Toledo has plenty of educational opportunities to offer individuals after high school. September – Labor The United States saw an economic trend coined “The Great Resignation” beginning in early 2021. This phenomenon has caused many to look critically at modern society’s expectations of work and productivity. Additionally, TSN will detail the importance and impact of no-barriers employment opportunities for individuals experiencing poverty and homelessness. October – Disability October’s publication themed to observe National Disability Employment Awareness Month will recognize and celebrate individuals living with disabilities. While the annual month observance infl uenced the topic, this publication will not be limited to employment awareness only. TSN hopes to spotlight local organizations, politicians, and programs that are helping to make our community more accessible to everyone in it! November – Holy Toledo! A celebration of all things Toledo, November’s publication will highlight Toledo’s tourist hot spots, local hidden gems, and everything in between! What makes Toledo the greatest city in the Midwest? December – Holiday Extravaganza Another year in the books and another season to celebrate! Toledo’s community is made up of folks from all different ethnicities, religions, and cultures. TSN wants to spotlight the various holidays celebrated during winter throughout our community! Page 4

have one thing in common, distraction of the vulnerable. Baby seat carriers left in parking lots or on sides of roads, items being put on hoods of cars, pins being stuck into tires to create slow leaks, these are all methods for distraction, leading to abduction. Attackers hope that you will stop to look in the baby carrier, that you will get out of your car to check what is on your hood, that the slow leak leads to a flat tire that needs checked. Utilizing the vulnerability of the potential victim is the prime tactic of the predator. Keep Your Eyes Open By Julia Hage Ohio is ranked as one of the highest locations for human trafficking in the United States, fluctuating amongst the top 10 over the last few years. Of Ohio cities, Toledo is one of the main hot spots for human and sex trafficking. The intersection of interstates I-75, running North to South, and the I-80 turnpike, running East to West, gives perpetrators the perfect transportation route to accommodate this illegal, horrific activity of moving humans as goods. Awareness and attention of human trafficking has become more prevalent in recent years, though the movement and abuse of humans has been inconspicuously taking place for quite some time. Survivors of trafficking and kidnapping, and individuals who have experienced attempts of trafficking and kidnapping, are speaking out via social media platforms. Utilizing the hashtag, #HumanTraffickingAwareness, on TikTok, a community has been developed to warn against traps set by predators, provide insight from survivors, teach self-defense techniques, and share locations and information of suspicious activity. Amongst the stories posted within this hashtag, there is one key message: Keep Your Eyes Open. Be aware. Be present in your surroundings. Be cautious while alone and while interacting with strangers. And if you see something, say something. Of the information provided on TikTok, the items that seem to be most beneficial are warnings against the newest traps for kidnappings. They all The most recent warnings have been focused on location trackers. Location trackers are easily purchased in today’s day and age. They are cheap, they are small, and they work. There are also certain safeguards created to help fight against unwanted tracking. For example, Apple, whose phones are utilized by a large portion of society, has created small trackers called AirTags, meant to be used to track your own belongings. These quarter-sized trackers are inexpensive and easily synced to your device to show maps, locations, times, and movement. A great product if you easily lose or forget belongings such as keys, luggage, etc. Unfortunately, this has opened the opportunity to track people without their knowing…or so predators thought. With Apple’s products, an AirTag tracker that is not registered to your device can be detected via Bluetooth. A warning message will pop up: “Unknown Accessory Detected” “This item has been moving with you for a while. The owner can see its location” (aka your location). Stories have been told of individuals finding these trackers hidden both inside and outside their car, in their luggage, bookbags, handbags. If the tracking device is Apple, and your phone is Apple, your device can detect the unregistered tracker and the warning message pops up. A map can be populated to see where the tracking started, how long tracking has occurred, and even play a sound on the tracker to help you find it. This safeguard is a wonderful thing, but also scary and startling to think that there might be people out there tracing your every movement. Also, what if the tracker is not picked up by your phone…then what? Continuous tracking without your knowledge? Maybe. TikTok has also worked to teach more universal signals for a potential and current victims to ask for help silently and inconspicuously. The first is a hand movement that consists of folding the thumb into the palm and wrapping the other fingers into a fist. If you see this, follow behind quietly and call 9-1-1. The second is asking for an “Angel Shot” at a restaurant or bar. If you ask for this shot, the bartender will help you to safety, if you ask for an “Angel Shot with lime”, the waiter or bartender will contact the police. There is a plethora of information Page 5 available to help you stay safe and become educated about human trafficking. January is Sex Trafficking Awareness Month, so take the time to learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones, and all those who are in desperate need for help and humanity. Take a moment to understand the signs of a human trafficking victim, and always keep your eyes open, for yourself, and for your community. States. It’s estimated that 50,000 people per year come from Mexico and the Philippines. Laura Parker is the co-founder, president, and CEO of Exodus Road, a donation-based organization that develops and engages people with programs to end human trafficking. She and her husband Matt Parker started the organization about ten years ago after a life-changing experience when Matt, a youth pastor, received an offer to run a children’s home in northern Thailand. Exodus road: A way out for sex trafficking victims Human trafficking is a lucrative trade that thrives on suffering. Although widespread, it is an issue that most have little awareness or knowledge of. For Laura and Matt Parker, witnessing trafficking first-hand while working in Thailand was a call to action. Ten years on, their organisation Exodus Road is going from strength to strength. By Cat Evans Human trafficking is an ongoing and widespread problem that the majority of society knows little about. There is no discrimination when it comes to the victims of trafficking; it impacts men, women, and children internationally. Statistically, however, women and girls are disproportionately impacted. According to freetheslaves.net, “an estimated 71 per cent of enslaved people are women and girls, while men and boys account for 29 per cent.” Trafficking is highly lucrative, with global profits sitting around roughly $150 billion a year – humanrights. org estimates $99 billion of trafficking profits come from commercial sexual exploitation. The majority of trafficking comes into the United Once they were overseas, Matt began working at an all-girls home. Trafficking wasn’t even on his radar until he heard about ‘Johns’ – people who recruited young girls and trafficked them. “It brought this overwhelming sense of responsibility to me,” he says. “I was running a children’s home with 48 girls in it; they were all from these villages.” From there, Matt started to investigate different villages to find out if the rumors were true. Everywhere he went, trafficking was a known issue – and even worse, it was a normal issue. “It struck me that something was happening that was systemic,” Matt tells me. He and his team met with law enforcement, who invited them to be their consultants and do research on human trafficking. They realized no one was looking for victims of trafficking. The civilians and nonprofits rely on the police, and the police are often corrupt and preoccupied. “This was a significant discovery for us,” Matt explains. To get the police involved, there needed to be solid evidence and verifiable information. Matt sought out informants to do the job and find tangible evidence but fell short because of the significant dangers that going undercover imposed. Growing more frustrated, he and a couple of his close friends took matters into their own hands. Matt was as serious about this cause as he was about his wife and children. Continue to Page 6

Continued from Page 6 Knowing the work was dangerous and that he was risking his life doing more than just research, Matt asked Laura for her permission. Laura, who was hesitant, assumed Matt’s project would take a short time to complete, and then, that would be that. Even though she feared for her husband, she ultimately agreed and gave him her blessing. What Matt and his team discovered, as they dug deep into the world of traffi cking, was disturbing and shockingly casual. At one point, the team came upon a location where girls were lined up on a stage wearing numbers. In turn, the Johns chose whatever number girl suited them, paid a set amount of money, and got to take the girls upstairs to do whatever they wanted with them for an hour. As Matt explains, “With human traffi cking, people are turned into a commodity. Those girls were commodities; they were canned goods on a shelf, and you could pick whichever ones you wanted.” Matt was able to speak to one of those girls, whose name was Belle. She recounted how someone came to her family offering Belle a job for massage work, and once she arrived, she was told she owed a debt and that there was no job; she had to dance. When Matt asked why she couldn’t leave, Belle explained that she didn’t know how to get home. This is a typical way victims of traffi cking get trapped. The traffi cker entices them with promises of great opportunity. Then, the traffi cker takes ownership of the victim in his possession, delivering on none of the promises he made. Upon returning home, Matt was so moved by what he experienced that he talked to Laura about continuing with the undercover work. Thinking of her own children in a similar situation, Laura agreed. She tracked Matt’s every move as he continued to work undercover – as he went in and out of brothels, studying what was going on, and secretly recording different spaces fi lled with underage girls for sale. After eight months, Matt turned over plenty of suffi cient intelligence to the authorities, but nothing came of it. He provided footage shot inside different locations and spoke with various women regarding their situations. As a result, he and Laura began to question whether or not what they were doing even mattered. As time went on, Matt was introduced to a 15-year-old girl named Sarah, whom he and his team tried to rescue multiple times to no avail. Each time they’d go in, there would Page 6 be an internal, corrupt tip-off from authorities, a common issue among law enforcement with corrupt ties. With the cards seemingly stacked against them, Matt and his team were relentless. They fi nally saved Sarah and the other girls, and the involved traffi ckers were arrested during a full-swarm hit on a known traffi cking space. From then on, they achieved more and more success. That’s when they knew they could really make an impact. In order to train, deploy, and map at large scales, they needed money. Then came the idea of founding Exodus Road, which they viewed as “a path out of slavery.” A frequent mantra for Exodus Road is, “We must make traffi cking a dangerous thing to do.” The model of Exodus Road exists to support other law enforcement offi cers, social workers, and different impact groups – to celebrate good work and make it known what’s happening in the world and to all who are involved. One of the largest issues with traffi cking is that it’s rarely mentioned in spaces of action. Over the years, as the organization has grown, it has become more and more evident that traffi cking is uncharted, neglected, and a necessary cause for Laura and Matt to devote their lives to. Speaking on why it’s such a rarity, Laura, who in the past two years opted into a leadership position as president of Exodus Road, states, “Traffi cking is an issue people are intimidated to talk about, particularly in a sex traffi cking space. There’s something about sex traffi cking that feels very taboo, so people kind of want to shut their eyes to it.” There are also extreme complexities and misunderstandings of how relevant it is to daily life. “People aren’t even really sure what sex traffi cking is. Most people think it’s happening somewhere far away, and they often miss the reality that it’s right here, as well.” What’s most worrisome about the misunderstanding of traffi cking is the major lack of information in knowing what to look for, and the best response and intervention methods. Pointing to the universal presence of traffi cking, Laura explains, “This issue is really hidden in plain sight. You see what you’d expect, but then you also see people who are professionals – whether they’re users (knowingly engaging with traffi cked people) or traffi ckers.” There are varying types of traffi cking. One common form is familial – where people are traffi cking out of their own homes. Often, people who are traffi cked are in unfortunate or desperate situations, like teens in the foster care system, LGBTQ+ youth, and homeless youth of all genders. Often, undocumented workers are used in labor traffi cking. Traffi cking also shows up in places like massage parlors, bars, domestic household help, city streets, and lower-income neighborhoods. “It’s hard because it is everywhere. Traffi ckers are alys looking to exploit the vulnerable,” Laura says. Over the past 10 years, Exodus Road has intensifi ed its focus on information distribution. They now have three prominent programs: prevention, intervention, and aftercare. In the prevention category is Traffi ckWatch Academy, a program that educates law enforcement, nongovernmental organization practitioners, students, and communities with high-level content from the counter-traffi cking community. The intervention program involves training, case building, technology use, and law enforcement support. The aftercare solution provides crisis workers and social workers on search and rescue teams. Recognizing that every shot is one worth taking, the Exodus Road team moves with a trauma-informed approach to help those in greatest need. As of now, Exodus Road has rescued 1,505 people, arrested 820 traffi ckers, and is currently operating in six countries.

The Housing Narrative Lab is helping tell the story of housing insecurity and homelessness in America The Housing Narrative Lab is a new communications and narrative research hub dedicated to sharing the stories of people facing housing insecurity and the systems that drive people into homelessness. Here, its director Marisol Bello writes about what’s wrong with American policies and how they negatively impact women who remain the vast majority of single parents in the US, some of whom have to choose- during a pandemic – between leaving young children at home alone or risking their jobs. By Marisol Bello Stephanie Land needed a job so she could receive a subsidy to place her daughter in child care while she worked. The problem was, as a single mom, the only way she could secure a job fi rst is if her daughter was in child care, and for that, she needed the subsidy. What’s more, without a job, she had no way to afford a place to live with her daughter. Her story represents what’s wrong with American policies and how they negatively impact women who remain the vast majority of single parents in this country, some of whom have to choose in this pandemic between leaving young children at home alone or risking their jobs. In Land’s New York Times bestselling memoir, MAID, author Stephanie Land offers an honest and powerful story of her life as a single mom crammed into a homeless shelter with her toddler, while working to make ends meet on $9 an hour and public resources. Her raw portrayal of the reality of living on the brink, earning so little cleaning houses that she often went hungry so she could have enough money to adequately feed her daughter, tapped into an experience rarely seen or heard. Land wrote in her memoir that she barely had enough to pay for gas to get her to work, let alone afford a monthly rent. Land’s story inspired a Netfl ix series that highlights just as powerfully how the challenges so many Americans have to fi nd - and keep - a home are not the result of personal failings. Instead they are the result of systemic failings that snatch any kind of safety net away from the people who need it most. We hear of the hoops - oh so many of them - that families like hers have to jump through to receive government resources that could lead to her fi nding stable housing. That is systemic failure. Even before the pandemic, America faced a crisis as safe and permanent housing remained out of reach for more and more families like Stephanie’s. The pandemic not only made it that much worse, but it also shone a burning spotlight on how important housing is as a basic need as millions of people lost jobs and faced being forced to live on the street. Now, more than ever, America is ready for a national conversation about how we work together to ensure everyone has a place to call home. The Housing Narrative Lab is here to join that conversation. The Lab is a national communications and narrative research hub that lifts up the stories of people facing housing insecurity and the systems that keep them from fi nding and keeping a home. We work with grassroots groups and advocates working to solve homelessness and serve as a resource for journalists who tell the stories of who is homeless and why. Research conducted by the Lab shows Americans want their elected offi cials to address the housing crisis and solve homelessness. Our surveys show voters will cast ballots for or against candidates on the issue. Research done in the last year by the Housing Narrative Lab shows a majority of Americans believe ensuring everyone can afford a place to live should be a top priority for elected offi cials. Respondents rank it fourth among top priorities for lawmakers behind stopping the spread of COVID, creating good paying jobs and more access to doctors and medicine. Almost six in 10 respondents said that without a job, people are likely to struggle to get and keep a roof over their head. The research shows people want proven solutions, such as government investments in local programs and services that provide homes or rental assistance, so Page 11 people have a roof over their heads. It’s clear from the research that it doesn’t matter the color of our skin, where we come from or how much money we have in our wallets, Americans share a recognition that housing is a basic need. We know we can solve homelessness. The solution is not rocket science: Provide more housing that people can afford to keep and maintain. That means increasing salaries so that people earn enough to afford rent, utilities and food to eat, while providing housing that doesn’t force them to choose between paying the rent and feeding their children - or themselves. We’ve seen efforts in cities, such as Houston, Texas, where dedicated funding goes to housing vouchers and establishing a cadre of housing units that are accessible to everyone. We’ve seen communities, such as Portland, pass local ballots that would tap funds to build and access more housing. We can each play a role by joining together to push for policies that house every member of our community. But it starts with each of us seeing and empathizing with the members of our community who are unhoused, forced to couch surf, cram into shelters, sleep in their cars or huddle in tents on the streets. Because no matter what we look like or where we come from, most of us just want to provide for our families. And we want to be secure in the hope that hardship won’t mean homelessness.

On the cards: Paul Schrader’s existential male loners Hollywood veteran Paul Schrader adds another character to his universe of tortured male protagonists to his body of work, this time Oscar Isaac as a war-vet card-counter who drifts from casino to hotel room to casino. The Big Issue Australia spoke to the pioneering writer and director about his new work. By Kai Perrignon Paul Schrader has not been to jail, but he understands what it’s like to feel trapped. In the veteran writerdirector’s new drama The Card Counter, Hollywood leading man Oscar Isaac plays William Tell, a former US soldier who now spends his days touring the casino circuit in self-imposed solitude. He allows no friends, no hobbies, no long-term plans. Schrader, who grew up in the Calvinist church in Michigan, can empathise: “John Calvin described the body as the prison house of the soul, and I felt imprisoned as a young man in my church background. “I [eventually] got out, but…part of the escape from prison is that you only escape to somebody else’s prison. You never ever get out, really.” In the film, we learn that Tell served time for crimes committed while he was stationed at the infamous Iraqi prison Abu Ghraib. He still oozes guilt. At every dingy motel, he wraps the furniture in white sheets. This ritual reduces all the rooms to one room, one cell. Meanwhile, travelling between bland casino halls and blank motels, Tell is stuck “in a purgatory of lights and stimuli”. The numbing aesthetics also happen to be what first attracted Schrader to the idea of a gambling movie. He was interested “in the concept of a professional cardplayer, someone who sits there 10 to 12 hours a day, six to seven days a week, running numbers. Because that’s all you’re doing, it’d be boring.” So no, this is not a traditional gambling film. Despite the title, there is far more Texas hold ’em than blackjack, and the card games Page 12 are secondary to Tell’s burgeoning relationships with Cirk (Tye Sheridan, Ready Player One), the revenge-obsessed son of a former military colleague, and the vibrant La Linda (Tiffany Haddish, Girls Trip), who runs a team of card sharks. For almost half a century now, Schrader has been using genre tropes to introduce audiences to the ideas that he really cares about: “What’s beautiful about using genre is that viewers are so hooked that it’s in their viewing DNA. I’m using it to lull you. And then all of a sudden, boom! You jumped from worrying about gambling debts to existential weight.” Existential worry has been a fixture of Schrader’s career since he wrote Taxi Driver (1976), the Martin Scorsese-directed, neo-noir masterpiece about Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro), an insomniac cabby suffering from PTSD. “People thought they knew what a cab driver was… He was a talky guy; he was the funny guy in movies,” Schrader says. “I looked at him and said, ‘No, this is the black heart of existentialism. This is a young man trapped in a yellow box’… You saw the concept of a cab driver in a new way.” Taxi Driver was the first of what Schrader calls his “man in a room” films, where the antihero – played by Richard Gere in American Gigolo (1980) and Willem Dafoe in Light Sleeper (1992) – is “the obsessive, unreliable narrator, who keeps telling you the story”. These men are never well-adjusted, and they are always alone. Schrader’s inspiration for this kind of character comes from 19th- and 20th-century literature – “Dostoyevsky in motion,” he calls it – but the variation that Isaac plays in The Card Counter feels modern. Tell’s guilt draws on recent horrible history, and there’s also something modern in how he moulds himself to cope. Schrader describes Tell as a “a computer: ‘I don’t play cards, I count them.’ [As if] somehow, by counting cards, he can control the fact that he’s at the mercy of fate and whim.” Tell tries to act like a “manmachine”, but Isaac has a way of conveying the feelings he’s trying to suppress. There is warm blood beneath his cold exterior, just as The Card Counter is a genuinely romantic film despite its purposeful lack of glamour, its sheet-lined rooms and talk of war crimes. The soundtrack of original ballads performed by Robert Levon Been (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) helps set the mood: “Running blind in and out of sight/you were on my lips/you were paradise,” goes the song playing as the usually monklike Tell holds La Linda’s hand in a lit-up garden. The lyrics express the longing he cannot. Thirty years ago, Schrader commissioned Levon Been’s father, Michael Been, to compose the soundtrack for Light Sleeper using the same approach. “I had the idea that [the music] would begin as inarticulate…like some kind of monster in the carpet; you hear groaning, you can’t see him, but you know he’s going to rise. Gradually, those start to become words and, finally, songs,” he says. In Taxi Driver, Travis famously refers to himself as “God’s lonely man”, a description that could apply to many of Schrader’s characters – most recently, the grieving reverend played by Ethan Hawke in First Reformed (2017). But these men are lovers as much as they are loners, and they each long for better lives. The phrase that rings out from The Card Counter is very different to the one Schrader wrote for Taxi Driver. It comes late in the film. Isaac puts his soulful eyes to work as he implores his companion to choose forgiveness over revenge. “Go see your mother,” he says.

Our Staff EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Arika Michaelis VENDOR MANAGER a new job, because he lost his old job because of presiding judge, Leonie Mengel, as he summed up the case after the two-day trial. Michael P. has said that he wants to fi nd attack. “I was drunk,” he admitted in the courtroom. “Otherwise I wouldn’t have done such a stupid thing.” P. seemed depressed as he described in court how he felt that his life had been slipping through his fi ngers. He has suffered for many years from a rare nerve disease: problems with walking and balance are consequences of the disease and sometimes he is unable to leave the house despite using medication. The fact that he could only calm his nerves with alcohol was confi rmed by an expert. Did the combination of alcohol and pills make him aggressive? This possibility cannot be excluded, according to the expert. However, “how [the attack] actually happened remains unclear,” said the his sentence, mainly as a result of his behaviour after the attack. While it is true that he ran away on the night of the attack, shortly afterwards he apologised to the victim in person on several occasions. And, although the victim told him that he didn’t need to go to the police, P. did so a little while later. “I wanted to take responsibility for what I did,” he said in court. Sven, his victim, did not appear in court, but later said in a conversation with Hinz&Kunzt that, “if he hadn’t contacted the police then they never would have found him, so he has my respect for that.” Michael P. only vaguely remembers the The 27-year-old got off so lightly, in terms of Seifert, the coroner, in the court proceedings that were held nearly seven months after the attack. Sven, a homeless man, had to be taken by ambulance for treatment in hospital. The sentence for the attacker was rather mild: he was sentenced to one year and three months in custody for causing grievous bodily harm and given a further two years on probation. This was just what the prosecution asked for. After he completes his sentence, Michael P. will be a free man. “He was incredibly lucky,” said Dragane he could sleep deeply. It was 6.20pm when a dark fi gure suddenly appeared in front of him at the Ohlsdorf station in Hamburg, where he had settled down to sleep. Then things kicked off. “I was only just able to prop myself up,” the 45-year-old remembers. Then came the pain as a 12-centimetrelong cut was slashed across Sven’s throat. It could have been fatal.
