Mixing rare film footage from Hackney Archives with freshly shot cinematography, Under the Cranes
is a lyrical, painterly evocation of Hackney over several hundred
years. Based on Michael Rosen's poetic play for voices, we hear from
Shakespeare in Shoreditch, a Jamaican builder, a Turkish Barber and the
43 Group taking on Moseley in Dalston. Join Director of Under the Cranes,
Emma-Louise Williams, with Michael Rosen and Ken Worpole as they
discuss how the film celebrates diversity whilst critiquing the rush for

A team consisting of Unit A students Julia Hedander and Paulina Huukari and four further students from University of East London have been awarded a scholarship by Going Global for a research project in Detroit, that will be carried out during summer 2013.
They are writing that, "Project Detroit: Post-industrial wastelands, ...will record the urban deterioration and will investigate what used to be there, by showing examples of a past vibrant city and finally what the city hopes to do in the future; how new organisations and partnerships are working towards regeneration. This will be done through documentation such as drawings, photographs, film and interviews with local community and city authorities."
