Homelessness is an important issue all across the world. This issue can be connected thematically to many other examples in the corpus, in particular those addressing the migrant crisis. It is especially resonant with works in the corpus that show the successful acquisition of a home: We had to Leave [Meidän pitää lähteä]. It will also connect well with the representation of Dickensian poverty in Shoe. This sombre stop-motion Greek short film details the pain of an old man without a home who begs on the streets for money. Young people aged 12-15 years old will find the affective power of this film to be significant as a springboard to consider the role of homelessness in their own lives, and their understanding of it. Importantly, the film leads the viewer to consider the causes of homelessness and alludes to dealing with mental illnesses. This is also notable as one of the few claymation short films in the corpus, demonstrating an important niche of the styles of animation generally found in children’s and young people’s media.
