For your consideration.

The life-affirming follow up to Donal Moloney’s documentary on his friend Martin’s homeless odyssey.

In fairness.

        Ah, yes. Cheers Clampers. I’ll put it here in case anyone’s curious (being nice like that – me):

        I’m not sure about this. I would really like to know how Martin is doing now? He seemed so happy with the pigeons and the elements and the people passing by. I can see how he is now safe and physically comfortable, but how has it affected his mental well-being – which seemed so joyful and free? Is he now more isolated? I know this might seem against the grain as a comment – Martin has been given what we are all supposed to want, and of course, a roof and a bed and running water are essential to most people. I’m not questioning the kindness and compassion being shown here, but I really want to know how Martin feels now, after a year or more in a flat? The film says he is as happy as he has ever been. Is that really what he feels, or what you think? I do hope you will answer this comment, Donal. Your films of Martin are beautiful, and have captured a lovely man, and I respect you and your work. I just wonder what price Martin might have paid for this comfort and safety? Warm regards

        Hi Rachel. I understand your concern. I too was very concerned about the transition. I and in particular the people at Housing First monitor the situation regularly. He adjusted extremely quickly. It’s been more than a year now since he’s been housed and I see him very regularly. In my humble opinion, he is as happy as he has ever been. Obviously there’s been a major change to his routine but he appears to have embraced a new routine. He’s incredibly house proud. Each time I visit or take him out I notice he’s much more inclined to engage in conversation. He’s still extremely shy with strangers(as he has always been) and I don’t see that changing. Nothing is ever a sure thing but all we can do is keep a constant close eye on all aspects of his welfare.

        Forgot to mention. He still feeds his pigeons every day.
