Description

An Exclusive *Private* Screening of Shout Out UK's short film The Director, a comedy about homelessness, at the Close-Up Film Centre in Shoreditch on Thursday the 8th of February from 6pm-7pm with members of the cast, crew and guests.

The screening will act as a fundraiser for St John's Soup Kitchen in Ealing - one of the primary locations used during the film.

Andrew Mcleay, a volunteer at St John's, will introduce the film as well as talk about his own experiences in dealing with the homelessness crisis.




The Director is a dark, social comedy which revolves around a 'serious' filmmaker’s desperate attempts to make a 'serious' documentary on homelessness.

The 18-minute film will be screened along with a Q&A afterwards from writer-director Patrick Ireland and producer Matteo Bergamini. Afterwards, there will be a small drink's reception in the cinema bar.

Homelessness is one of the most pressing issues facing modern society. According to the most recent statistics, there are more than 6000 people living on the streets of London. Moreover, homeless people are often thought of as being somehow responsible for their own situation - but in many instances, this just ISN'T the case.

Shout Out UK, the makers of both ‘Anonymous: A Million Men’ and ‘One in a Million’, have produced a film that aims to explore homelessness in an entertaining, satirical and subversive way.

Rather than making a serious documentary however, done many times before in the past, the creative team have instead opted to produce something a little different (and daring) when it comes to discussing these important social and political issues.

The film is produced exclusively by Shout Out UK and available as part of their Political Literacy Subscription package for schools.
