FILM CLUB: LONDON: THE MODERN BABYLON (JULIAN TEMPLE, UK 2012) + Q&A WITH PRODUCER GEORGE HENCKEN / BAR AND FOOD FROM 6PM / FILM AT 8.15PM / CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO BOOK
London – The Modern Babylon is legendary director Julian Temple’s epic time-travelling voyage to the heart of his hometown. From musicians, writers and artists to dangerous thinkers, political radicals and above all ordinary people, this is the story of London’s immigrants, its bohemians and how together they changed the city forever. Reaching back to London at the start of the 20th century, the story unfolds through film archive and the voices of Londoners past and present, powered by the popular music across the century. It ends now, as London prepares to welcome the world to the 2012 Olympics.
We welcome the film’s producer George Hencken (Requiem for Detroit, Oil City
Confidential) for a Q&A following the screening.
