Things Will Be Different: Documentary & Walking Tour

Things Will Be Different documents two neighbours’ experiences of displacement.

The film explores the impact of losing one’s home and the important role public housing plays in our communities, documenting residents as they are forced to relocate from the Walker Street public housing estate in Northcote, Melbourne when it is sold for private redevelopment. 

Things Will Be Different was made by local filmmakers Celeste De Clario Davis and Lucie McMahon. The first screening will take place at the All Saints Church in Northcote adjacent to the now demolished estate, and will involve a walking tour of the local area with the documentary participants and audience. The second screening will take place at Thornbury picture house accompanied by a Q&A with filmmakers and the documentary participants.

Please note: The film and associated activities are provided in English and Auslan only. The film will be closed captioned in English.
