Denis Doran and Teresa Cairns work with Peterborough and London homeless people to tell their stories through film – this evening is an opportunity to see two documentary works, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
NO PLACE LIKE HOME tells the stories of ex-rough sleepers struggling to establish ‘ordinary lives’ in London. The film follows their experiences as they shift from the uncertain and chaotic nature of life on the Street, and try to move towards more settled existences and permanent accommodation.
SOME KIND OF LIFE is the result of working with people in Peterborough who have been, or still are, homeless. The film explores, through personal narratives, a constellation of issues implicated in being ‘on the Street’. The stories challenge assumptions about what constitutes home and how people understand their own sense of belonging.
Presented in partnership with videoclub.
