The Home Project

The Home Project asks the question 'What does Home mean to you?' Through a series of short films exploring the lives of residents both old and new, the films paint a picture of the community that calls our borough Waltham Forest home. The Home Project shines a light on individual characters and shows the broad spectrum of inhabitants, their contributions and how they have built their own legacies and how they have built a home.

Sitting In Limbo 2020 BBC

Directed by Stella Corradi and written by Stephen S. Thompson, Sitting in Limbo tells the true story of Anthony Bryan, who after 50 years in the UK, was wrongfully detained by the Home Office and threatened with deportation. A shocking drama inspired by the Windrush scandal.
