Anthony’s Inspiration for making I AM HUNGER: “I wanted to make a film that inspires and gives hope. The grass roots voluntary operations that are on the ground trying to tackle the sharp rise in poverty and homelessness should serve as an inspiration to us all. The selflessness of their work is vital and a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable in our society. We live in fragile times and we need to start placing humanity and compassion back at the top of the agenda. Greed and consumerism is failing us in such a massive way, we simply cannot carry on down that path.”
