Will Robson Scott’s new film puts these residents from the front line, in front of the lense. Letting them tell their story of how it is. Shot in black and white, this is about as gritty as it gets and true to the style of other films by the british film maker, which I strongly advise checking.
If you are looking for a more positive vibe after that make sure you check this next video from Thump. Its a much more positive spin on the situation.
