HANGING ON

SHORT FILM

2021 | 10 mins

Set in Oulton, Leeds - some of the last remaining post-war prefabricated houses in the UK are still standing. Residents of this ex coal mining village now at threat of eviction share their stories of community and family as they look to their future. HANGING ON reminds us about the struggles of people who are slipping through the cracks of society and what it means to have a home.
