An object lesson in how to campaign quietly and effectively, this thought-provoking documentary is as much an historical record as a plea for compassion towards the homeless.

In Detail

Shot from March 2020, when London first became a dystopian cityscape, until May 2021 and the end of the third lockdown, it follows the work of volunteers from a Covent Garden collective called Under One Sky as they help those sleeping rough on streets deserted for weeks on end. Among the heroes of the story is the owner of the Punjab Restaurant who calculates that he and his team produced some 175,000 meals for customers who never sat at one of his tables. A heart-warming experience.

We are delighted to welcome Executive Producer Elizabeth McGovern (‘Downton Abbey’), together with co-directors Franc Vissers and Elizabeth Healey for a Q&A after the film.

Director Statement
“The volunteers of Under One Sky were not prepared at all for a national emergency but they were resourceful and they were brave. The film is the result of our work over a year of lockdowns. It remains the most difficult and rewarding thing I have ever done.” - Franc Vissers, Director
