Elmo was arrested? You’ve seen them--at Hollywood’s Walk of Fame you may even have taken a picture with them. THE AMBASSADORS OF HOLLYWOOD is a verité look at the characters who greet over 12 million visitors from around the world. While many are actors or extreme fans, some are homeless trying to earn enough by posing for tips to have a room for the night—or get a fix. They are freelance and there are few regulations. Often funny, often poignant, and always engaging, this Bel Air and Santa Fe Independent Festival documentary selection captures a humorous, inspirational and sometimes disturbing snapshot of America and chasing “the dream”—one dollar at a time.
