Paddy’s Paradise

Paddy is a lonely homeless man who spends most of his time drinking alone in the park or living in a broken down telephone box waiting for his dead wife to call.

Filmmaker’s statement

“After my homeless friend passed away, I felt compelled to make Paddy’s Paradise as a tribute to him and for anyone else in the world who is currently suffering or has suffered the plight of homelessness.

Shot for very little money, the film was only made possible thanks to the generosity and kind support of many people. I hope it helps to raise awareness of homelessness.”
