New Town Utopia is a feature documentary film about utopian dreams and concrete realities… the challenging, funny, and sometimes tragic story of the British new town seen through the prism of Basildon, Essex.
The narrative is guided by the artists, musicians and poets of Basildon – on a journey through memory, place and performance. Facing austerity, adversity and personal battles they are individuals driven by creative spirit to help their community through art, poetry, music… and some rather angry puppets.
It features Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent (Iris, The Sense of An Ending, Paddington) as the voice of Lewis Silkin MP.
