"Half Way is an insight into homelessness we've never seen before - a hilarious and emotionally wrenching insider's perspective of a situation we think will never happen to us. This is raw and real doc making." - Charlie Phillips, Head of Docs, Guardian
★★★★ "Hudson’s excellent fly-on-the-wall documentary, filmed while she, her mum and younger sister were between homes, is urgent, powerful, eye-opening stuff " - Total Film
Half Way documents the lives of a family in-between housing during one of the UKs largest housing epidemics. Shot through the eyes of both filmmaker and subject, Daisy as daughter and director brings to life a unique and immersive story, which comments on the wider realities of the current economic climate.
An extraordinary story of courage and determination, a story of family bonds which is both heart-breaking and life-affirming, combining moments of tremendous tenderness and grit with hilarious and unexpected humour.
The screening on Wednesday 11 January will be followed by a live in-conversation between Director Daisy-May Hudson and acclaimed filmmaker Roger Graef.
Roger Graef OBE has been a leading figure in the TV documentary industry over the last 50 years. As a director, producer and executive producer, he has been responsible for more than 160 documentaries, a number of which have directly influenced policing, criminal justice and social policy. His pioneering contributions include developing the fly-on-the-wall technique and creating the first TV documentary co-production in the UK.
