    Your film really illustrates what can be done with good planning and excellent support. It is very obvious that the key issue is that people can be “helped” by having workers who stay in positions for the long haul. Unfortunately in urban areas the turnover of support staff changes as regularly as traffic lights and hence a myriad of problems can get overlooked because of a lack of communication, trust and accountability. Although the film cites people coming out from residential care homes it doesn’t give any space to intentional communities and therefore it needs to address this to give the full picture.
    Otherwise a good film and thanks to the people who participated and produced it.

    • Thank you Pamela,
      I am really glad you appreciate the film. It was very interesting and rewarding getting to know the people involved and learning about their journeys towards the life they want. I hope to make more films looking at other options. Of course, this critically depends on getting the funding!
      I will pass on your thanks to everyone.
      Peter
