Three of the Waltham Forest's young filmmakers, Emmanuel Li, Naomi Soneye-Thomas and Lamar Harper will collaborate with selected ‘Monumental Citizens’ – local citizens identified by community leader Satvinder Cubb as being an integral part of the fabric of South Chingford – to create a series of short films.
Using these films, designer Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad will create an interactive film installation on Chingford Mount activating the civil architecture of the space. Chingford Mount is a vibrant hub used by many different people in the community.
Two of the filmmakers previously took part in See the Real, the first phase of Listen Local earlier in the year. The Mini Forest Cinema’s visit to Chingford Mount provided the inspiration for this piece.
Listen Local is a project in partnership with the Royal Court and National Trust bringing together groups of Waltham Forest residents and established artists to explore and create. The whole community are invited to be part of this free experience. Click here for more information about Listen Local
