Project Description

‘Home Sweet Home’ tells a complex but intimate story of urban and social transformation, and asks: what kind of society are we building?’ – UCL Urban Labs

‘Home Sweet Home’ is a feature film directed by Enrica Colusso, shot over four consecutive years in and around the Heygate Estate from 2008 to 2012. Shot on the filmmaker’s home turf, where she has lived for twenty years, the film is an up-close portrayal of the streets and faces caught within the large regeneration scheme of the Heygate Estate.

Since its release in 2012, the film has been screened at venues including Open Docs Festival, UCL’s Urban Lab and Heygate Pop-up Cinema. The film is available free to watch in full online.
