Enrica Colusso / 2012 / UK, France / 91′

Monday 15th April 2013, 19:00 @ Pembroke House, 80 Tatum Street, London SE17 1QR

Following its popular premiere at Open City Docs Fest 2012, Open City Docs are teaming up with UCL UrbanLab Films to present a community screening of Enrica Colusso’s Home Sweet Home.

Filmed over four years, Home Sweet Home brings out the drama of a massive regeneration scheme unfolding in the heart of the capital. It is also a personal journey of discover in the city the filmmaker chose as her home 20 years ago.

Centred around the now derelict Heygate Estate, Home Sweet Home tracks the people affected as well as the decision-makers behind the scenes, offering a complex, intimate narrative of urban and social transformation, and asks: what kind of society are we building?

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with director Enrica Colusso, Jerry Flynn (local resident), Ben Campkin (author Remaking London: Decline and Regeneration in Urban Culture, 2013), Dave Hill (journalist and editor of The Guardian‘s London blog) and Michael Collins (photographer).

Please join us for refreshments at 19:00, screening starts at 19:30. Find us here.

Please RSVP to by 16:00, Friday 12th April 2013.
