What's on at Cameo Picturehouse - Picturehouse Docs
After the screening we'll be joined by director Daisy-May Hudson for a Q&A.
Half Way is an immersive documentary chronicling the experience of a homeless family living half way between homes. Told through the eyes of Daisy, as daughter and filmmaker, it offers a self-reflexive lens into both the lived realities and mental deterioration of a family living as hidden homeless during Britain’s exploding housing crisis. This film documents a rare opportunity where the line between filmmaker and subject is blurred: all at once we witness the joyful and hilarious moments of everyday family life, up against its inevitable struggles. What began as a therapeutic process during a disempowering situation became a mission to complete a film. Half Way has transformed into a critique of Britain's welfare system, its housing crisis and the facelessness of ineffective power from the viewpoint of a family living through it.
