Homeless East End actors to have film aired on TV
A film performed by East End actors who were once homeless is to air on TV.
Spitalfields-based arts charity Cardboard Citizens has made a short film for the Community Channel’s Untold Stories series.
The charity has the backing of Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet, who turned up for its fundraising gala at Christ Church Spitalfields on March 19.
Every year the group creates a new play about fighting the oppression of homelessness.
Media Trust, which organised the Untold Stories series, pairs small charities with professional filmmakers.

The film airs on April 5 at 6pm.
