Living in-between
Directed by: Nefeli Oikonomou Pantzou
Category: Documentary
 
Year & Country: 2016, Czech Republic
 
Duration: 9 min
 
Synopsis: At the moment the number of homeless people in Czech Republic is approximately 68.500, while 9.500 out of them live in Prague. 
Having as a reference the concept of heterotopias as described by Michel Foucault, this documentary focuses on the public spaces homeless people appropriate and transform into private ones. Those places are the “homes” of Vaclav and David and also an overnight shelter for homeless people, organised by the state this time, which surprisingly is not a building but a “retired” boat. 
Using as a connective element between those different locations is the water we are making a journey in different spaces where the narrator is those people describing their experiences in relation to the specific site in which they live and the Director of the Social Services in Prague explaining the way this floating piece of space is functioning.
