- Gallery 1: Excavations
By 1989, the Conservative government was three years into a programme of wealth creation and urban redevelopment unparalleled in 20th Century Britain. BAFC's third film, Twilight City, can now be seen as the first essay-film to map the cartography of the new London through an excavation of the psychic and historical strata of the Docklands, Limehouse and the Isle of Dogs.
In its movement between archival image, fictional script, studio interview, transposed photographic tableau and travelling long shots, London is re-imagined as a city of night and light, bordered by a landscape of dreams and sequenced by electronic pulses.
