Screening: Living at Home, Five Stories from Older People
The film was produced by BOPF in collaboration with Care & Repair England and Bristol Ageing Better. It was created by local film maker Neil Maggs and features interviews with five older Bristol residents. Touching on topics emerging from last year’s BOPF Housing Survey Report, such as stereotyping, neighbourly support, housing affordability, the need to stay in the community, the importance of older people influencing decision making and the challenges of lockdown and self-isolation. The film offers a snapshot into the lives of people whose voices often go unheard.
