Working together to end homelessness.
Like a lot of folks this year, we’ve been completely knocked from pillar to post both emotionally and financially.
But there have been some positives for us. It’s been a great period of creativity and we’ve been able to use some of the time this crazy situation has given us to grow and develop our practice and experiment more with our filmmaking.
We wanted to give something back so we reached out to Emmaus Salford and offered to donate our time and shoot a film for them that would help shine a light on the amazing work the charity does for homeless people and residents in Salford and beyond.
Covid has laid bare the class divide and with over 250,000 people in England currently homeless or living in temporary accommodation, the thought of becoming homeless is now something that is on many peoples’ minds.
Spending time with the residents of the Salford community whilst making this film has really helped us to understand the many different ways that people can become homeless.
Everybody there has a different story but they all have the same positive mindset and will to succeed.
I think Jake the youngest member of the Salford community puts it best “you’re not a bad person because you’re homeless, it’s just a bad time in your life”
The full-length film will be out in the New year.
