3 Films about South East London, 21st May from 2pm-5pm

Further to an award from the Bermondsey Square Community Fund, the Friends of Southwark Park will be running a free screening of three South-East London films at the Shortwave Cinema 10 Bermondsey Square, London SE1 3UN on Thursday 21st May from 2pm-5pm

The programme includes:

Wellbeloved’ (2014) directed by Stewart Morgan. The reputation of the steak pie has become diminished. It is time to rediscover the essential ingredients of this staple of traditional British cuisine. It is time to go to Deptford, South-East London.

‘It’s Our Park’ (2014) directed by Stewart Morgan for The Friends of Southwark Park to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Southwark Park Act 1864. Filmed largely in the park during last summer, it also contains some recently discovered footage of the old lido and other historic images.

‘We Was All One’ (1972) directed by Ken Ashton for Thames TV, which looks at the environment and lives of south Londoners some 40 years ago. Of special interest are vivid scenes of Bermondsey, including the community enjoying themselves in the Hand and Marigold pub, nearby Bermondsey Square. The documentary won the prestigious Prix D’Italia and was produced by Jeremy Isaacs. We hope cameraman Mike Doods will be joining us for the afternoon.
