This Is Pete, And He Has A Story To Tell

Categories: Life Stories

Pete explores ideas of space, time and social freedom, focussing on his experiences of squatting in empty commercial properties throughout the UK. As a self employed poet and performing artist living on a low wage, Pete represents a growing group of our society who are having to find DIY solutions to live and thrive in our cities.

Shot in and round multiple London squats, as well as the now empty Olympic Park, the film asks important questions about the illusionary housing crisis and the link between the mass privatisation of space and the lack of affordable housing in the UK.

Pete is part of the film series England Your England. For more films and information visit, or
