Renowned director Patrick Keiller invites discussion of his haunting exploration of why, as a supposedly advanced economy, the UK fails to address the problem of its dilapidated, over-valued housing stock. Hosted by Newcastle University APL public lecture series.
The film sees a fictional researcher (with the voice of Tilda Swinton) return from a 20-year absence in the Arctic to find that, though the UK is one of the most electronic of the advanced economies, its houses are the most dilapidated in western Europe. The film includes archive footage of Buckminster Fuller, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Archigram and Walter Segal, and interviews with Martin Pawley, Saskia Sassen, Doreen Massey, Cedric Price and others.
When: Thurs 21 April, 5.30pm – c.7.30pm
