My Little Grey Home in the West - in conversation with filmmaker John Goldschmidt
Multi award-winning film director JOHN GOLDSCHMIDT
in conversation with Adrian Wootton OBE (CEO of Film London) about the making of his first film whilst at The Royal College of Arts in the 1960s. Including screening of film and Q&A.
'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.
