This Saturday, Tottenham World Film Club are screening the documentary The Road: A Story of Life and Death.
The road in question is the A5, connecting Holyhead to Marble Arch and the traditional route of Irish immigrants coming to the capital, and this documentary looks at a handful of very different immigrants who have made London their home.
Giving the film 4 stars, Time Out described The Road: A Story of Life and Death as “More than a film about immigration, this is a film about London – a city where journeys begin as often as they end and where life’s roads are far too unpredictable to be mapped.”
Director Marc Isaacs will take part in a live Q & A after the film. The screening is the club’s second event, following last month’s launch.
Also on the bill is a short documentary, Mothers of Tottenham, produced by TWFC members and a dramatic fiction short, Falso Amore. After the films and discussion with Marc Isaacs, there’s music from J-Unity and Haringey Stars followed by a live DJ set from DJ Cruzer with DJ Quillz until 1am.
The screening is this Saturday 16 March at Tottenham Chances, 399 High Road N17 6QN and doors open at 7pm. See the Tottenham World Film Club website for film trailers, the full programme or to book your ticket (£5).
The afternoon before the screening sees the launch of the TWFC creative workshops series with an open Animation Workshop with Rosanna Wan and Zuzanna Weiss. The workshop will be a hands-on look at the mechanics of animation, focusing on spontaneous and experimental techniques that show how animation can be a quick and approachable medium for everyone. You can read Rosanna and Zuzanna’s personal intro to the workshop, watch samples of their work and book a workshop ticket on the Animation Workshop page on the Tottenham World Film Club site.
