What: Screening and discussion during EAST END FILM FESTIVAL
Where: Rio Cinema, London
In the Stratford and Lee Valley areas of East London, the Olympic site expands as the 2012 Games get closer. But what's it like for the residents, from the new influx of artists taking over the warehouses to the older generations that use the riverside walks of the River Lea and the football pitches of Hackney Marshes?
Film education company polkadotsonraindrops present four new documentaries made with young people about the River Lee in east London. With the support of UK Film Council funded First Light, Tower Hamlets Partnership and Leaside Regeneration, the films have been developed with Swanlea School and youth groups over eight months.
