"Thomas Wirthensohn made a film we love, 'Homme Less', wrote Mumford & Son's Winston Marshall. "It follows a close neighbor of mine at the time, Mark, a neighbor I never met, but inevitably we'd have brushed shoulders several times. Mark is one of the many men that make New York what it is, and Thomas' film is a perfect portrait of the beast that the city is. He kindly used his footage and put it against our song 'Tompkins Square Park', also the neighborhood in which Mark and I lived."

HOMME LESS - award winning documentary

Feature documentary about the underbelly of the American Dream. 

Winner of the Grand Jury Award at DOC NYC 2014, Best Documentary at Kitzbuehel International Film Festival and the La Trois Award at the Millennium Film Festival in Brussels. 

'Follow your bliss but be prepared to be your nightmare!'

From all outside appearances, Mark seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies and attends the best parties. When he leaves those events, however, he heads to the East Village— not to an overpriced loft, but to a hidden corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. HOMME LESS exposes the dark underbelly of the American Dream in an often-merciless city.
