Following its UK premiere at Open City Docs Fest 2012, Open City Docs are teaming up with UCL UrbanLab Films to present a community screening of Enrica Colusso's 'Home Sweet Home'.

Home Sweet Home

Enrica Colusso / 2012 / UK, France / 91'

Filmed over four years, 'Home Sweet Home' brings out the drama of a massive regeneration scheme unfolding in the heart of the capital. It is also a personal journey of discovery in the city the filmmaker chose as her home 20 years ago.

Centred around the now derelict Heygate Estate in Southwark, 'Home Sweet Home' tells a complex but intimate story of urban and social transformation, and asks: what kind of society are we building?

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with director Enrica Colusso, Jerry Flynn (local resident), Ben Campkin (author, 'Remaking London: Decline and Regeneration in Urban Culture', 2013), Dave Hill (journalist and editor of The Guardian's London blog), and Michael Collins (photographer).

Screening will begin at 7.30pm.

Free entry. Limited seating available. Please RSVP to info@opencitylondon.com by 4pm, Friday 12 April 2013.
