Latest News 10 September 2017

Many thanks to our guests Alex Barrett and Graham Chalk for making Tuesday evening at the David Lean so memorable. Alex (director/editor of London Symphony) took part in an illuminating Q&A, and Graham (Director of Film and Media Production at the BRIT School) launched our BRIT School Showcase screenings. Part of the occasion was filmed by the School’s Live Crew for their next production, so we will provide details when this can be seen on YouTube. For more information on the London Symphony film which is making a tour of venues across the country, see their website or read more on this story.

London Symphony (2017 UK) Cert. PG – plus Q & A with the Director

Director: Alex Barrett
Stars: London
Musical Score: James McWilliam

This is a spellbinding new city symphony – an entirely dialogue-free movie that swoops around more than 300 locations in the capital to the tune of a newly composed musical score, celebrating its culture and diversity.

After its nomination for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, we mark London Symphony’s limited, ’boutique’ theatrical release by hosting a live Q&A with director/editor Alex Barrett.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will also be screening BRIT School Showcase film London.wav (2016, 3 mins), directed by Samuel Marino.  This montage of London images, precisely synchronised to music, launches a new partnership involving the School’s Film & Media Production department.
A different BRIT School film will be shown at selected screenings each month.

 

Here is a link to a Review in the Silent London blog.

Despite the limited theatrical release there is a Trailer, which can be seen below
