UTOPIA LONDON: COMMUNITY FILM CLUB
Monday 10 September
7pm (refreshments from 6.30pm) at Starr Auditorium, Tate
Modern,  Bankside; free to members
 Tom Cordell's feature length documentary that explores
London's recent architectural history. The film observes the
method and practise of the Modernist architects who rebuilt
London after World War Two. It shows how they revolutionised
life in the city in the wake of destruction from war and the
poor living conditions inherited from the Industrial
Revolution. This film is their story. Utopia London travels
through the recent history of the city where the film maker
grew up. He finds the architects who designed it and
reunites them with the buildings they created. These young
idealists were once united around a vision of using science
and art to create a city of equal citizens. Their
architecture fused William Morris with urban high-rise;
ancient parkland with concrete. Utopia London examines the,
social and political agendas of the time in which the city
was rebuilt. The story goes on to explore how the meaning of
these transformative buildings has been radically
manipulated over subsequent decades. Inspired by the
optimism of the past it poses the question; where do we go
from here and now? Membership of the Community Film Club is
primarily intended for residents of Southwark and Lambeth.
To join (it's free) email communityfilmclub@tate.org.uk or
call 020 7401 5176.
