25-minutes documentary "The Hidden" shows the unknown social phenomenon of "hidden homelessness:“
People who have a roof over their head, but no home of their own. People who are forced to sleep at
their partners’ places, in squats, or on couches of friends, because they can’t afford to find a place of their own.
There’s Aisha in Birmingham (UK), who lives in temporary housing after being abused. There’s Dan, who squats an old building in London (UK), without wanting to be a squatter. There’s Dagmar, a fallen entrepreneur who
sleeps on the couch of a friend in Erlangen (Germany) while being evicted from her own place. And there’s Biggy in Cologne, Germany, who spent many years of her life sleeping rough, and who is one of the
very few to find a way back into society.
The stories in “The Hidden” are an alarming indicator for societal changes going on in the rich EU countries Germany and the United Kingdom, unnoticed by the mainstream media; a growing difference between the rich and poor in two societies that become less and less permeable.
