It is refreshing to see another dimension to the story of homelessness, i loved this film, it's a gem.
What is different, is that it doesn't cash in on the darkest side but looks at the grey area of homelessness, an area that actually affects more children than adults in England and from an unqualified perspective this must be damaging in its own way.
Kerri interviews friends from her days and nights of hanging out in doorways, clubs or squares, they look back at these days, some of which knew of her predicament and others that did'nt.
The interviews that really touched me, focused on those that we're in the same position as herself, the people who have survived this Journey and are now 30+ looking back.
They openly admit that at 16 it almost seemed like fun, but how else could you dress this predicament up? Now they only look back with sadness as "there's nothing fun about surviving each day finding where your going to sleep, what your going to eat." Again the human spirit as ever is strange to some and not so to others, all of the people in this film appear to have dealt with their past in their own way, some appear to have converted temporariness into a way of life! I found this film particularly warming but direct.
Time and again we are serviced with the facts and figures of homelesness (all of which are horrifying) and it all ends up seeming like an academic rant! I found this film human and real, with what seems to be lots of differing characters becoming involved in the directors journey.
Looking back i now question some of my own friends storys of crashing here and there!
