In the early 1970s, photojournalist Don McCullin photographed the area of Toxteth in Liverpool, capturing the place during an era of transition and decline. Focusing on one photograph from his collection,_ Almost Liverpool 8_ paints a parallel contemporary portrait of the same area through the eyes of the people who inhabit it today. From Turner Prize winning projects to a new generation of poets and artists, this film heads into the heart of the community to meet photographers, beekeepers, and the people that make ‘L8’ a model example of a modern community. A melting pot of cultures where Georgian townhouses rub shoulders with social housing, and Mosques stand opposite Synagogues, people from all countries converge in an area that is as diverse as its population. Almost Liverpool 8 is a lyrical look at an often misunderstood community.
