IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD is a series of short documentaries on local businesses and their owners. A celebration of privately owned establishments for the local community. An insight into the otherwise unseen lives and livelihoods.
The first of these documentaries is about a pub in North London called The Wenlock Arms. This much loved pub has been under threat of closure and I wanted to make sure the interior had been documented. I filmed the pub empty, every corner, nook and cranny, and for six months writer Robert Makin of International Review and myself recorded interviews with the local punters at this long standing ale house. These interviews will provide the soundtrack.
