HUNGER BY THE SEA2018-09-26T12:14:42+00:00


As the number of people using food banks in Britain continues to rise, it is sometimes easy to forget that there are real human beings behind the statistics. In this short animated film, people talk openly about their desperation and feelings of shame at having to use one, as they struggle to keep their ‘heads above water’.
