2014-05-16

The purpose of this film titled 'Invisible' is to highlight the reality of being homeless. It was produced in Southern Spain, in the city of Cádiz.

"Its something that we see, but sometimes just out of the corner of our eyes. It's usually not something we take on directly. There's always a type of prejudice. There's the idea that if you live out on the street, or if you don't have a home, it's because you did something wrong.” 


The short film shows the life of a group of homeless people who receive help from Caritas, in the Archdiocese of Cadiz.  It shows what living in the outskirts really means, for those who have nothing. 


"When you live on the street, you're just something wrapped under a blanket. You're nothing. 

For three months, they shared their experience of living out on the street, on camera. At times, they even helped out with the production and with logistics.

"We thought it was necessary to make people aware of this situations, to make them realize that it could happen to anyone. That at a certain point we face two or three challenges in life that may force us to live out on the street from one day to another.” 


But the film highlights that there is a  light at the end of the tunnel. With help from organizations like Caritas, determination and inner strength, a new start is possible. 


"First, you can't give up. Then, you have to want it with all your heart.”
