After a successful first preview screening at the Whirled Cinema in Brixton in July, we are delighted to announce a second preview screening of Circle/Line at renowned visual effects house Double Negative.
We are also pleased to say that the screening sold out shortly after tickets became available – hopefully a sign both of how the first screening was well received and of how people are interested in seeing a film about happiness in contemporary London.
The DNeg screening has kindly been made possible by Garry Madison, a senior colourist at the company, and who has worked on such prominent films as The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, Ex Machina and Paddington.
Garry saw Circle/Line at the Whirled and was sufficiently impressed to propose the second preview screening, which takes place at 6.30pm on Thursday 29 September. Places may become available at the last minute, so if you’d like to join a waiting list, please contact us.
The Circle/Line preview screening is just one of a few screenings of Beg Steal Borrow films set to take place over the next few weeks: Circle/Line will have a private screening at the University of Skövde in Sweden, with Selfie enjoying a forthcoming screening at the University of Roehampton, The New Hope playing at the University of Central Lancashire, and En Attendant Godard due for a screening in Curitiba, Brazil, in October.
More information will follow about these screenings when details have been confirmed.
Are you happy?
This is the question that we ask people outside or near the stations of London Underground’s Circle Line.
Circle/Line is, then, a documentary comprised of vox pop interviews with ‘everyday’ people – from the homeless to the hopeful, from the ambitious to the activist, from task-driven Londoners to tourists.
Inspired by Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin’s classic documentary, Chronique d’un été/Chronicle of a Summer (France, 1961), Circle/Line is nonetheless an original work and a fascinating insight into the lives of people in contemporary London.
Shot by Beg Steal Borrow regular Tom Maine, the film is both a portrait not just of people, but also of the city of London itself.
