Tonight, ‘Sunny Boy’ which won the Le Grand Prix du Jury at Cannes will be shown as part of the ‘Shooting Gallery’ series of short films on Channel 4 at 11.55pm. The film was made by Jane Gull, who lives on the demolition-threatened Regents Park Estate in Camden, which inspired her to make ‘Our Street’, a story about her neighbours.
When she got her award, Ken Loach, whose film Jimmys Farm has similar themes to HS2 said;
“I’m sure her prize is well deserved. Well done! And good luck with the campaign to save homes from HS2. It’s a daft idea. There are so many local rail services that would benefit from the investment. All HS2 will do is make it easier for people to get to London more quickly and further concentrate jobs in the south-east. Madness…”
So, especially after running the Kings Cross video yesterday, here is ‘Our Street’ again.
