Abstract:

"How do you take care of your health when you don't have a home? The people best able to answer that question - and to challenge the circumstances that have led to it - are given the tools of digital media-making to document their stories and to create extraordinary photographs, audio narratives and short videos. Hand-held features over 100 minutes of riveting digital storytelling created by young mothers who have experienced homelessness. The I WAS HERE photobloggers came together in a unique media workshop through the NFB Filmmaker-in-Residence project at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto ... The powerful photographic images they created led to a city-wide tour of their work and to a public declaration of their rights and needs. Then, in a project called STREET HEALTH STORIES, the women chronicled the lives of more than two dozen homeless people as part of one of the most comprehensive scientific studies on the health of the homeless, "The Street Health Report" [2007]. Hand-held also includes the team's film UNEXPECTED, a provocative and transformative video dialogue between homeless mothers and healthcare professionals who deliver babies. This anthology is a frank and invaluable resource for nurses, doctors, social workers, policy makers, social activists, and patient advocacy organizations ... and anyone interested in how media and medicine can work together to change lives."-- Container.
