Movie Info

Half Way documents a family as they go through the emotional and physical anguish of becoming homeless and living 'halfway' between homes. Daisy Hudson's day to day filming of her family's fight to retain their dignity as they wait for a new home from the council will give an audience a rare and direct insight into the struggles of homelessness and social housing. 100 hours of raw footage has been edited down to a feature length film with the intent to defy stereotypes and challenge taboos towards homelessness and 'scrounge culture' - from the perspective of those living through it. Half Way is an honest, often humorous and moving first hand testimony. Not only does it offer a powerful personal story, but is representative of a widespread problem in the UK. The definition of "homelessness" is changing, once a term reserved for those on the fringes of society, it is now becoming an epidemic of the mainstream.

  • This fate may not be the toughest form of homelessness, but Daisy-May Hudson's video account forcefully shows the stresses placed on her mother, Beverly, and her younger sister, the teenage Bronte.

  • 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.
