Thu Nov 30 17:30:00 2017
On The Ground At Grenfell is a film by Director Nendie pinto-Duschinsky, that tells the stories of nine people: survivors, local residents and volunteers who have been affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. A group of local people and film-makers were already making a documentary about the closure of the nearby Stowe Youth Centre when the fire threw their world upside-down in the middle of the shoot. In the surreal atmosphere, with the fire still burning in the building, the team turned their cameras to their community. Amidst a wave of extensive media coverage, On The Ground At Grenfell is unlike any of the other reporting from the scene. It captures the complex feelings of being ‘on the ground’ in a way that the news could not access or communicate in soundbites. Showing the deep bonds of family within the community; the astonishing heroism of young people who lost their lives trying to save others and the otherwise unseen words and drawings of the community in the tower itself.
Join Director Nendie pinto-Duschinsky for a showing of this powerful film in the Performance Space from 5:30pm at Ruskin College. There will be time for a Q&A with the film Director and local residents after the film showing - confirm your place today!
