Tomorrow night DADo Film Society presents ‘New Town Utopia’ (2017) :- a film directed by Christopher Ian Smith exploring Britain’s experiments with post-war planning.
Originally intended to help ease crowded London, Basildon in Essex was among the first wave of the ‘New Towns’ – testbeds for new architecture and design that would shape a different kind of citizen : “ a healthy, self-respecting, dignified person with a sense of beauty, culture and civic pride”. The film uncovers the outcome of these progressive ideals, 60 years on. Through a series of interviews with local artists, the director explores the way Basildon has impacted the lives of its inhabitants. ‘Do people make the place…or does a place make the people?’ Image : thunderclap.it
