TALES OF THE CITY

  • 4 films

It is 40 years since 13 young people were murdered by racists fire-bombing a birthday party in New Cross, London. The first three films in this programme, Tales of the City, are very different responses to that event. The last film weaves fact with fiction to explore deeply personal ideas of race, place and belonging set against the background of 1980s London.
