SYNOPSIS 

This documentary is about the reality of homelessness for mature women told through the lens of the personal and centred around a theatrical production co-created by the 8 members of the cast of Australian women. It's a positive, vibrant testament to survival from women who have lived in hedges, in cars, couch surfed and now want to spread the word via story, song and image. They are raw, emotional, authentic, full of humour and bonded by a belief that this documentary will be key to spreading positivity about the value of camaraderie and community. " No pity party" they shout. We are Here and very much Alive!!!

This documentary project has arisen out of an extensive period of collaboration with a group of ex-homeless women in 2019. The women were brought together over the period of 9 months in 2019 to collaborate with one of the co directors of this documentary, Deborah Leiser-Moore, to produce a performance based on the lives of the women. The production, called unHOWsed, was supported by the City of Port Phillip and Theatre Works and had a successful season at Theatreworks in St Kilda in November 2019. Audiences were moved by the production and the experiences of the women. 

ONE LINER
