Modern Londoners are the focus of anthology film London Unplugged, which arrives in cinemas on 18th January 2019.
Comprising of ten shorts, the largely female-led stories come from a talent pool of emerging filmmakers. Independently made, London Unplugged explores themes of isolation, asylum, unmanageable rents and identity.
London Unplugged’s films are Dog Days (featuring Ivanno Jeremiah), Felines (Juliet Stevenson), Unchosen (Poppy Miller), Club Drunk, Mudan Blossom, Pictures, Little Sarah’s Big Adventure, Shopping (Bruce Payne), The Door To and Kew Gardens (Imogen Stubbs).
Many of the stories derive from real world testimony, through extensive research with London frontline organisations; the Refugee Journalist Project, Migrant Resource Centre and Four Corners Film, the Bethnal Green filmmaking charity.
The films were curated by supervising director Nicholas Cohen and they are threaded together by real-life aspiring athlete, Yourlance Bianca Richards.
London Unplugged opens on 18th January 2019. There will be special screenings with moderated filmmaker Q&As at Peckhamplex, Everyman Crystal Palace and Everyman Muswell Hill.
