Richard is the fascinating story of a travelling piano tuner who chooses to live outdoors. Shot in London, the film takes an alternative look at someone who treats the entire city as a home. Richard classes himself as working homeless – a growing group who sleep rough by night, but then get up in the morning to go to work. Richard sees his lifestyle choice as an experiment of economics, convenience and environmental impact.

You don’t need anything to be happy

Directed by Matt Hopkins and edited by Dave Thomas

Richard is part of the film series England Your England, an ongoing documentary series showcasing powerful stories from real people across the UK.

  1. That's really brave of him. I did something like that for 1 year, nothing close to what he did, but just saying I'm going to be free from society's shackles now ... it took an incredible amount of energy. He must love his freedom.
