This film investigates the community of boat dwellers living on Regents Canal in East London. The filming took place over a single day, and the narrative was not preconceived. The film captures the daily life of a thriving community, and also highlights the threat it faces.
We are MyStreet, a film competition for short documentary films based on streets and communities. We want to know how people live now, and what their street means to them. We showcase all the film submissions we receive on our brilliant interactive map, explore it for yourself at mystreetfilms.com
It's a fantastic opportunity to make a film, get it seen, and maybe even win prizes awarded by our grand jury, headed in 2012 by Nicholas Philibert.
