HALF WAY: A DOCUMENTARY SCREENING
Rarely can we witness, at close hand, the stark realities of homelessness in Britain today. Half Way tells the personal story of Director Daisy-May Hudson who, over a year, filmed her own family’s fight to retain their dignity while waiting for council rehousing. But this is not the usual tale of gloom and dependency in an increasingly difficult economic climate. This is an extraordinary story of courage and determination, as featured in Huck 53: The Change Issue; a story of family bonds that is both heart-breaking and life-affirming, combining moments of tremendous tenderness and grit with some unexpectedly side-splitting humour.
