Event Details

Open hours:9am-5pm


'My Little Grey Home in the West' is an intimate portrait of the residents at Newington Lodge in Walworth, South London. The former public institution for the homeless was the location for Ken Loach’s film ‘Cathy Come Home’ and Goldschmidt’s film was probably the last to be made at the lodge and launched his career as a documentary producer/director at Granada TV, Thames TV, and BBC TV after graduating with an MA. Soon after, Goldschmidt moved on to dramas inspired by true stories like ‘Spend Spend Spend’ (1977) and then to European co-productions and to theatrical films like ‘Dough’ (2015).

This event is being organised by Southwark Archives in association with Film London-London's Screen Archives.
