"Nadia": short film on resources for homeless teens in the UK
Teddy Nygh’s short film “Nadia”, posted by Million Youth Media, explores the subject of homelessness in teens in th UK. It is produced by Centrepoint Parliament, and funded in part by the UK Legal Foundation.
Nadia (Rosa Coduri) has been evicted by her mother over her behavior and apparent alcohol use, as shown a flashback. At school, a sympathetic teacher (Richie Campbell) steers her to explore her legal rights and get to a homeless shelter.
The narrative of the film is designed to inform homeless teens in the UK of their legal rights.
Homeless doesn’t have to be completely involuntary.
