‘Wetlands’: a film about the perception of homelessness

Keshena Bowie

Reel Access & their homelessness-affected filmmakers are hoping to make the invisible visible by bringing homeless drama 'Wetlands' from page to screen & challenging how society views homelessness.

Some members of our Staging Recovery ensemble have been involved with this project, and we think it's a cause worth supporting.

You can find out more and support the Crowdfunder here.

Best of luck to the Reel Access team - we will keep our fingers crossed your campaign is successful!
