Gatwick: The Last Chance Hotel
First screened in June 2019
Director: Jason Byrne. Documentary about the Gatwick Hotel in Melbourne, Australia, run by two sisters as a haven for the indigent and the struggling.

Twitter Capsule: Given modest start and mundane production values, I relished the narrative and emotional force this accrued.

VOR:   I expected a broadly-pitched gentrification study, but this one scores similar points from a more intimate, textured, site-specific vantage.
