Half Way documents the lives of a family in-between housing during one of the UKs largest housing epidemics.

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

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.
