Free Movie Night: Under Cover

Event description

Narrated by Margot Robbie, Under Cover is a documentary sharing the lives of an eclectic group of women throughout Australia. It highlights a devastating reality – women over 50 are the fastest-growing cohort experiencing homelessness in Australia. Hundreds of thousands of homeless people in Australia are hidden and go unrecognised. The majority of them are women. These women are forced to live in their cars, stay on friend’s couches or sofa beds, or live in short-term accommodation.

The women featured in Under Cover are a diverse group from different cultural, financial and working backgrounds. With the hardships of housing stress and aging, these women are looking for a home to call their own, for the final chapter of their lives. They share complex and compelling stories that reflect the years of living ordinary lives until a catastrophe or a series of circumstances knocked them off their feet. Matt Vapor from Beneath The Surface will give a short talk about his lived experience of homelessness.

This is a catered event with free popcorn, soft drinks and choc-tops available to all attendees. Please book as tickets are limited.
