East End Film Festival

Evening all

I'm delighted to announce that my first film,
Under the Cranes, will be showing at this year's
East End Film Festival 
Saturday 30th April  
Rio Cinema, Dalston

The film is based on poet Michael Rosen's play for voices Hackney Streets and is the culmination of two years work shooting in Hackney, sifting through local film archive and filming some beautiful paintings by Leon Kossoff, Jock McFadyen and James MacKinnon.

Very many thanks to everyone who has worked on the film in any way. I'll be posting the full cast and crew credits later and details of screenings at Arts festivals in the summer.

The film had a little preview taster as part art installation at Red Gallery, Shoreditch where it was projected with several other films at the Hackney Hear launch event on Friday 18th March. People seemed to be enjoying it.

This is Leon Kossoff talking on Channel 4 News not long after his 80th birthday
