Archive Film

Total: 73 mins 57 secs

This block of shorts uses old archival footage to revisit stories and bring them into the present day. We go back to the 80’s to try and piece together the catastrophic crusade of a paediatrician, and take a trip down memory lane of a working-class Yorkshire bloke. We watch a re-mastering of a 16mm documentary about drowned poet ‘Shelley’ from 1822, and look at the tragic case of police brutality towards a Nigerian immigrant in 1969.
