Experiencing Interruptions?

We are Human

It can be uncomfortable seeing someone you don’t know who is clearly struggling. Most of us aren’t sure if we can help. It’s easier to look away; avoid eye contact.

“We are Human” is a film that challenges this behaviour, encouraging viewers to confront the uncomfortable truth and see that stranger as a human being.

Director Statement

This is a pro-bono film I made as a gift to The Passage, a London based charity that help homeless and vulnerable people, to help them raise money and awareness.

The Passage has experienced, trained professionals that proactively seek out homeless people and offer them help to get off the streets, back into good health, a job, society and giving them back their sense of self. The Passage sees the human in everyone.

Thanks to everyone who worked with me on this project!
