Shorts Competition, block II
Set in Oulton, Leeds, an old coal-mining community of over 60 houses still stand. Originally made as temporary council housing, but sold onto private investors, they now sit with the threat of demolition, displacing a large number of residents, some who have lived there all of their lives.
Featuring a combination of audio interviews and artistic visuals we discover the stories of a close community of residents, their sentimental memories and the stress and uncertainty of an ongoing campaign to save their homes.
This documentary reminds us about the struggles of people slipping through the cracks of society and explores what it actually means to have a home.
