A GREAT INSIGHT INTO THE Forgotten HOMELESS PEOPLE OF SYDNEY!!
2 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This documentary gave a rare insight into the world of the forgotten homeless people of sydney. I have lived my whole life in sydney N.S.W in Australia and never gave it thought about the plight of these people. In this documentary you are given a first hand tour of what it is like to spend all your days and nights living on the streets and fending for yourself. You also learn that the government is not willing or able to help out a lot of these people, many who are under 25 or children. I was amazed that so many homeless people live amongst us and yet unless we go in like the film producers of this documentary, we will never understand why so many live on the streets. It is true of the title of this movie because most people feel there is no hope to their situation, but i believe with a little knowledge through this documentary we can learn and maybe help in some small way. excellent doco 10 out of 10....
