In collaboration with WeTransfer, I directed this short film project, 'Winter In America', focusing on the homeless
community on Skid Row, Downtown Los Angeles. Since living in Los Angeles, I’ve been very aware and
increasingly shocked by the homeless situation. The loss of humanity caused by institutional disenfranchisement
and societal violence toward certain groups within the population is something I knew I wanted to address
through my work.
Many of the people living on the streets experience dreadful hardship, struggling with homelessness, addiction
and mental health issues, but many appear to find incredible solace in music, which is the driving narrative
behind this film. The aim of the work is to humanise and give voice to their stories, but also to raise awareness of
the dire situations and challenges they experience on a daily basis.
