Project one (AUX/Kumo) is being projected onto the National Theatre as part of 'The Beautiful South: The South Bank & Lambeth on film'. If you havent seen any films there you should go to this. Sit outside and look up onto the facade of my favourite structure in London. You can slip in your tins of red stripe, get drunk and watch a few films for free (i think). Back in February Project One was awarded ‘Best Film 2009′ in the BFI Future Film Awards
'Highlights from the BFI National Archive’s extensive collection of films from our own back yard. Brief City (Jacques Brunius, Maurice Harvey | 1952 | 19 mins) is a joyous tribute to the creative vision of the 1951 Festival of Britain, an event that easily combined pioneering design with seaside postcard vulgarity. In We Are the Lambeth Boys (Karel Reisz | 1959 | 52 mins) members of Alford House, a youth club in Oval, share their hopes and frustrations. The journey comes full circle in Project One (Yohan Forbes | 2009 | 7 mins), a skateboarder’s odyssey from the Thames Barrier to the South Bank.'
