“Perhaps the most important British Film since I, Daniel Blake” The Big Issue
This film explores the agenda behind the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in the U.K. over the past thirty years. Narrated by Maxine Peake, the film reveals how individuals and communities are fighting against the state and private developers, as they try to save their homes from demolition, while investigating the decisions that turned a crisis into a tragedy.
The screening will follow a short presentation by Nick Hubbard Research and Campaigns Officer at Bridgwater'Citizens Advice Bureau on a recent housing report he has prepared titled "Home is Where The Heart Is", written for Sedgemoor District Council in preparation of the introduction of the Homelessness Prevention Act. You can read a summary of the report in advance here.
