On Saturday 19th September 2015 four films made by local young people will be premiered at a special outdoor cinema screening on the Patmore Estate, Nine Elms. Each of the films were devised, shot and edited by participants from Chocolate Films’ Project Nine Elms Past and Present during two week-long workshops earlier this year.
The Patmore Pop-Up Cinema will showcase four short documentary portraits made by young people about residents from Battersea and Nine Elms discovered during two reminiscence days held earlier this year. The films include local mural painter Brian Barnes MBE, Jeanne Rathbone, a humanist celebrant, comedienne and local campaigner, Guyanese elderly resident Ted Murray, and acclaimed writer and poet Gabriel Gbadamosi, author of ‘Vauxhall’. Nyasha Duri and Mia Asante two of Chocolate Films Young Ambassadors will host the Q&A with the films’ directors and subjects
Alongside the Nine Elms Past and Present programme we will be screening films from Film London’s, London Calling programme including directorial debut from Riz Ahmed (Four Lions and Night Crawler).
