Film Screening - From the Cubby
A film exploring homeless and tuberculosis in the UK following members of Canterbury's rough sleeper community during an outbreak of TB.
About this Event

From the Cubby derives its name from a makeshift encampment in Canterbury England that used to be frequented by members of the cities rough sleeping population. The Cubby also proved to be a geographical epicentre implicated in an outbreak of tuberculosis. The first episode in this film series (The Travellers Tale) serves to contextualise the precarious lives of the series protagonists as the disease takes hold in their community. The second episode (The Harmonicists Tale) explores the treatment journeys of the people who were infected and the efforts of health and social care professionals as they battled to prevent further contagion. The third and final chapter (The Fishermans Tale) is emerging from screenings and workshops of the first 2 episodes taking the form of building networks and advocating towards healthcare interventions and harm reduction initiatives.
