Brexit Talks: Goodbye Europe at the Museum of London
Brexit Talks: Goodbye Europe at the Museum of London, 18 March 6.30pm
Just days before Brexit, join 1000 Londoners and the Museum of London for a special screening of our brand new season ‘Goodbye Europe’ – a collection of stories created specifically for this historic moment in the capital.
‘Goodbye Europe’ is an anthology of new short films about the London lives of people from each of the 28 nations in the EU. It will show parts of the city that you may never have seen – profiling the rich and poor, the young and old, the integrated and the outsiders, from the West End all the way to the ends of the Tube lines. This will be a documentary experience like no other – a journey through the lives of European London, shot in the final months of the UK’s time in the EU.
Along with the films, you will see edits of footage from the 50s to today curated by the archivists from London’s Screen Archives. Afterwards, join the Brexit Talks team to have your say on what it means to be a Londoner post Article-50. Brexit Talks is a Museum of London project that seeks to gather oral histories from across the capital to capture how Brexit is effecting Londoners lived experiences. Curator of Social and Working History, Vyki Sparkes, will introduce you to objects from the Museum collection that tell the story of London’s unique relationship with the EU. You will also get the chance to meet Londoners from the films and filmmakers.
