The documentary film, Judging The Gatwick, was projected right onto the wall of the Gatwick Hotel—a beautiful way of honouring the film, the Gatwick, and the former residents. The film features twin sisters Rose and Yvette (Etty) who dedicated 45 years of their lives to those in need of the Gatwick and the true stories of former residents of the Gatwick who found their way to the hotel after being displaced from their homes for neighbourhood gentrification and renovation. As the film continues its screenings, profits will go to The Father Bob Maguire Foundation, who helped residents of the Gatwick for years. Father Bob Maguire, along with Rose & Etty, and many former residents of the Gatwick attended the premier showing of the film.
ALIVE was honoured and proud to be part of the premier of this important film. The dedication of Rose and Etty who ran the Gatwick and The Father Bob Foundation which seeks to continue the type of work done at Gatwick demonstrates the generous nature ALIVE values.
