Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Five years ago the wonderful Paolo and Lisa from Echo Park Film Centre in Los Angeles took up residency at the Engine Room and worked with 32 emerging filmmakers to create a 24 minute documentary. Based on the avant grade city symphonies of the 1920’s, filmed on Super 8mm and processed using eco-friendly techniques, including tea, coffee and cider, the film took outs place amongst a series of similar films. We’ll watch the film and enjoy a short activity using Super 8mm.
