Marc Zammit’s Aptitude Films is delighted and proud to announce that their remarkable new British independent feature film HOMELESS ASHES will have its UK Premiere at this year’s prestigious Film Festival RAINDANCE on Monday 23rd September at 21.15 at the Vue Cinema London – Piccadilly
London-born actor Marc Zammit, making his directorial debut with HOMELESS ASHES – a film which shines a light on homelessness and gives homeless people a voice – says: “We are honoured to be part of this world-renowned independent film festival. I am so proud of all the cast and crew who did such epic work for this film by going above and beyond. We have achieved so much over the last four years and I am seriously forever grateful. They believed in my film and trusted in me, and joined me on my journey to make this story of one homeless boy. Each person living homeless has a story and deserves to be heard. They are homeless, not invisible. I met many of them living on the streets of London whilst researching for this film. It is dedicated to them. I am so proud of all the cast, crew and supporters who have done such epic work for this film by going above and beyond to tell this story.”
HOMELESS ASHES tells the story of Frankie, a young boy who runs away from an abusive home and grows up trying to survive on the streets – adult Frankie is played by Marc Zammit. After fleeing from his parents Stuart and Abbie, he falls-in with junkies including Viv and Ryan, makes honest friends in Gavin and Chico, and is reunited with childhood friend Nicole. But living on the streets is tough and not everyone survives. Andrew Lee-Potts. Hollyoaks favourite Fabrizio Santino, and US actress and singer Maria Howell also star.
