Monday 14 January
7pm at Tate Modern,  Bankside; free to members
* Some Activities of Bermondsey Council (1931)
Bermondsey Borough Council was the first to make its own
films. In 1931, Some Activities of Bermondsey Borough
Council, a newsreel-style film, was made from a compilation
of previously made footage, to explain the Council's various
services and activities. 
* We Was All One (1972)
The changing way of life in London's East End as old streets
are demolished and new blocks of flats put up. The film
examines the loss of community spirit, and whether the
changes are for the worse or better.
Membership of the Community Film Club is primarily aimed at
those living and working in Southwark and Lambeth. To become
a member (it's free) call 020 7401 5176, email
