Why We Sing - Ruben
5 October 2021

Ruben does not allow himself to be defined by his experience of homelessness. He is an artist, and embracing that identity through Streetwise Opera inspires and empowers him as he rebuilds his life.

A short film with Ruben Whitter, directed by Rey Trombetta, with original music by Jessie Maryon Davies, and production support by Isabella Harriss and Victoria Munro.

Filmed in Nottingham in August 2021. Special thanks to Nottingham Playhouse, Nottingham Boxing Club and the Streetwise Opera group in Nottingham.
