Regenerating Govan Through Film: screening & discussion at Pearce Instute, Govan during Radical Film Festival, 2016.

  Regenerating Govan Through Film: screening at Pearce Institute of films I have produced with Plantation Productions. This event was part of the 2016 Radical Film Network Festival.

Plantation Productions have been making films with, by and about the Govan community since 2001. As well as documenting a community recovering from the industrial decline of the last cen-tury, Plantation's work has contributed to the social and physical regeneration of the area, through creative engagement with hundreds of local people aged from 5 to 95.

Screening of: "The Govan Banners", made with the Govan Seniors about Govan and Glasgow connections with the Spanish Civil War; "You Play Your Part" about campaigning women on Clydeside over the past 100 years including women in the group who fought for equal rights; and the teenagers of Govan, whose recent documentary "Here. Us!" was produced as part of OXFAM's manifesto on inequality. I was invited as a guest speaker to discuss my work in Govan alongside local filmmakers and participants.
