Moments in Pickwick

We are delighted to publish our second work in Rolling Volume 13.1. In Moments in Pickwick: Opening a window into women’s lived experiences of transitional housing through participatory filmmaking Minna Sunikka-Blank, Janina Schupp and Matthew Flintham utilise participatory filmmaking to explore transitional housing in Pickwick, Cape Town. As they join five women inhabiting the space, they gain insights into their lived experience of the environment, revealing how the transitional housing environment affects their domestic routines and the impact of the women’s new-found access to energy. By employing creative, participatory filmmaking practice within the female-centred transitional housing unit, this film explores an alternative approach to energy and housing studies. The aim of the resulting film is to reveal insider narratives in contrast with top-down imaginations of inhabitation.
