Most Londoners have had their fair share of adventures and challenges when moving from one rented home to another. Moving in with a new lover or to a new city. Running away from a spouse. Dealing with a crazy landlord or an even crazier ex. All your worldly possessions piled up in boxes or scattered around you in chaos.
Finding a new place to live is often linked to changes in circumstances. UNPACKING explores how these moments of physical transition correspond with more dramatic emotional or psychological transitions.
An anthology series created by Matthew Hurt and Oliver Mason, each episode is different in tone – aspiring to be as diverse as Londoners themselves. But first and foremost, UNPACKING aims to be an entertaining tribute to the tragicomic and absurd resilience of the human spirit. And brown cardboard boxes.
