New Town Utopia (15)


New Town Utopia (15)

Thursday 22nd November 2018 - Saturday 24th November 2018

The C20 Society South West Region is supporting this screening of the widely acclaimed documentary New Town Utopia at PAC. Thursday's screening will be introduced by the C20 Society and followed by a Q&A.

New Town Utopia is a documentary feature about utopian dreams and concrete realities… the challenging, funny, and sometimes tragic story of the British new town of Basildon, Essex. A journey of memory, place and performance guided by the artists, musicians and poets of Basildon. Facing austerity, adversity and personal battles they are individuals driven by their creative spirit to improve their community through art, poetry, music… and some rather angry puppets. The themes looked at will resonate with those who love the ambition and architecture of Plymouth.

Both screenings will be preceded by a viewing of the short animated film Engineering Plymouth (15 mins approx.).
