… A new Union Street Documentary in it’s final stages…

Whilst out filming, Union Street and Producer James Meehan happened upon a former soldier who was suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and had become homeless. During a lengthy conversation about how and why he had found himself in this predicament, he discussed what services were available and what he hoped for in the future.

After such an emotional and thought provoking conversation, the team decided to investigate further and try to find out who and why people become homeless, what people who find themselves in such a situation can expect life to be like and what assistance is out there for them.  Talking to those without a home and those who choose where they go, this film uncovers the harsh reality facing todays homeless and why we shouldn’t turn away.

We also take a look at what Manchester’s decision makers say and read between the lines in an attempt to understand what is really going on…

Unlike so many other media companies we don’t wait for clients to ask us to tell a story. We’ve always maintained a strong social conscious, so if there’s an issue that needs to be to raised we don’t need a pay cheque to tell it.

Watch out for the documentary coming later on this year… For more information, or to get involved, contact Roop on roop@unionstreetmediaarts.com, James on james@unionstreetmediaarts.com or call them on 0161 877 3124.
