The trailer for Beg Steal Borrow’s forthcoming documentary, Circle/Line, has now gone live.
The trailer features snippets from some of the many interviews that William Brown and Tom Maine conducted between May and August 2015 outside stations on London Underground’s Circle Line.
In the film, interviewees are asked one simple (?!), initial question: are you happy? And from there, the conversations go in all manner of different directions… although in order to see those, you’ll have to wait until the finished film.
On that note, William is putting finishing touches to what he hopes will be at least a preliminary draft of the finished film. Keep your eyes open for a preview screening coming up soon…
Partially inspired by Edgar Morin and Jean Rouch’s Chronique d’un été/Chronicle of a Summer (France, 1961), Circle/Line offers a fascinating insight into the well-being of people in London today – from the homeless to the hopeful, from the ambitious to the activist, from task-driven Londoners to visiting tourists.
We hope that you look forward to seeing the finished film!
