“The only great problem of cinema seems to be more and more, with each film, when and why to start a shot and when and why to end it.” – Jean-Luc Godard

Warning. You may find the content of this film upsetting.
'Over eight months, between 2011 and 2012, I documented the lives of homeless women in London.
I spent time in hostels, joined outreach teams, met rough sleepers, as well as the 'hidden homeless'. During that time I came to understand that for many women homelessness is a symptom of far deeper problems; of lives shattered in childhood through abuse and neglect.
Few women who have experienced such traumatic childhoods are ready or even want to tell their stories. It’s too personal, too painful.
Lucy was different. She had started the difficult process of confronting her past in a brave attempt to build a future.
Be Myself is not easy to watch, but it does offer hope. Lucy's honesty sheds light on issues that too often and for too long have been ignored.'
Georgina Cranston (photographer and producer)
This photofilm was first shown at the ‘Where from? Where now?’ exhibition, an in-depth multimedia project which explored the stories behind women’s homelessness through the words and reflections of 15 women. The other women's stories can be found on the Where from? Where now? website.# vimeo.com/55514996 Uploaded 9,797 Plays 16 Likes 1 Comment
Trailer for the forthcoming documentary In No Great Hurry - 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter.
“I believe there is such a thing as a search for beauty’
Saul Leiter could have been lauded as the great the pioneer of colour photography, but was never driven by the lure of success. Instead he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of beautiful work that is now piled high in his New York apartment.
An intimate and personal film, In No Great Hurry follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing an apartment full of memories, becoming world famous in his 80’s and fending off a pesky filmmaker.
2012. UK/USA. 75mins. Colour.
