HS2 film maker makes TV debut

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.

One comment to “HS2 film maker makes TV debut”
  1. Now, some two years after Jane filmed Our Street, about the plight of just three of the elderly residents whose homes face demolition in Euston land grab, Ivy, Stan and George still in the dark and very anxious about their future. Hs2 Ltd will have to compensate LB Camden who have pledged to replace lost homes locally. But for the loss of their homes of many decades and the stress and upset that will involve they are entitled to ‘up to £4,700’. Likely won’t cover moving costs. What a disgusting way to treat anyone, especially those who fought to save us from tyranny in WW2.
