‘Broadmead: The Movie’ to be shown at the Whitechapel Gallery

The film ‘Broadmead: The Movie’ directed by Radiohead Artist, Stanley Donwood and Mat Consume with a score written by Plymouth University researcher John Matthias, and Jay Auborn will be shown at the Whitechapel Gallery, London on Thursday 19th October. The film will be followed by a Q & A with the directors and composers and a live performance by John Matthias and Jay Auborn.

Evoking a nostalgic time when the UK Government was investing in the NHS, funding new Universities, developing rail systems and allowing public ownership of city centres, Broadmead: The Movie is far more than a short film about a Bristol shopping centre. Somewhat elegiac, where the soaring flight of a seagull or the sad flapping of a discarded plastic bag conveys a sort of bleak beauty.
