The New Central Office of Information - Strangers (BF Taylor, 2015)

Hi Everyone
In the spirit of the direction that my research has been taking me recently I am posting the first in a series of re-imagined public information films.

The sights and sounds of the 1970s are very familiar to me as I was growing up during this period. In part, this is informing and shaping my thoughts. But I am also inspired, if that is the right word, by the current political climate in the UK , with its emphasis on distance, difference and distrust. In this way, these sounds and images from then feel very very now.
