Half Way is a documentary in the making, recording a family as they go through the emotional and physical anguish of becoming homeless and living ‘halfway’ between homes.
Daisy Hudson’s day to day documentation of her family’s fight to retain their dignity as they wait for a new home from the council will give an audience a rare and direct insight into the struggles of homelessness and social housing.
As a film it will be an uncomfortable but compelling watch. We have 250 hours of raw footage that we hope will defy stereotypes and challenge taboos towards how homelessness and ‘scrounge culture’ are perceived in an increasingly difficult economic climate – from the perspective of those living through it.
Half Way is a hilarious, honest and moving first hand testimony. Not only does it offer a powerful personal story, but is representative of a widespread problem in the UK. The definition of “homelessness” is changing, once a term reserved for those on the fringes of society, it is now becoming an epidemic of the mainstream.
