Please join us for our next exciting Passengerfilms screening on the 5th of March, organised in collaboration with OpenSpace Research Centre at the Open University!

The peer researchers on the Creating Hackney as Home project spent the summer of 2013 creating five short films that capture their experiences of living in a rapidly changing London borough. From journeys through and across the city come explorations of the impact of gentrification and the history of style, as well as reflections on growing up and out of space and managing everyday cultural diversity. The screening will include a chance to hear from the research team about the production process.

This will be followed by a rare screening of Winstan Whitter’s provocative ‘Legacy in the Dust’ (2008), a film about the legendary Four Aces Club in Dalston prior to its demolition. Winstan will be joining us on the night to discuss his film and the motivations behind his long-term documentary work in Hackney.

This is a free event taking place on March the 5th (kick-off at 6.30pm) at The Russet in Hackney (London E8 2BT – click here for directions).Please write to jan.smith@open.ac.uk to register for your free ticket!

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
