PAYBACK is a film about money.  Why we love it.  Why we hate it, and why we can’t live without it

 

Commissioned by Phoenix Community Housing and Riverside Housing,  made by The Working Party  and Hide Productions, it was the culmination of a month long research project in South Lewisham during which 46 people were interviewed about debt and their relationship to money.  These interviews were shaped into a short script which was filmed around Downham, Bellingham and Whitefoot with a mixed profressional and community cast.

When completed the film will be toured round local community organisations and used as the centre piece for a workshop that delves into everyone's least favourite subject; money and debt.

"I enjoyed having a platform to try out things I am most passionate about but never had the chance to do. I liked the casual yet professional dealings and the positivity of the Team, giving and boosting confidence. The community support this kind of project offers is paramount and there aren’t enough things like that to bring people together in order to work creatively towards a common goal..."
