A View From Here

This is the complete film that I was involved in
Pity I cant make it, hope that some of you who may find it of interest can turn up


Special Outdoor Film Screening
Laurieston Arena, (opposite the Citizens Theatre on Gorbals Street)
Friday 27th February:  6-8pm


WAVEparticle is delighted to invite you to attend a special outdoor screening of 'A View From Here', a film commissioned by the Scottish Refugee Council and directed by filmmaker Basharat Khan of Bash Art Creative. The 27 minute film follows two community groups, from the Gorbals and from Knightswood, who explore and reflect upon the heritage of high rise and the experiences of asylum seekers, migrants and local Scots who live in and around these flats- telling a powerful story of the people who live in these areas.


In advance of the film screening there will also be a chance to see some of the favourite still images taken by members of the local Gorbals Photography Group based at the Barn.  And everyone is welcome to the Barn (37 Abbotsford Place), immediately after the screening for a hot pie and a mug of tea!
The creation of the Laurieston Arena is supported by New Gorbals Housing Association, Urban Union and Glasgow City Council has been developed and designed by WAVEparticle as part of the Open Spaces initiative for Art & Living : Laurieston, the art strategy developed for the area.



We would be delighted to see you at the screening on Friday- invite attached.
With best wishes,
Lauren Coleman
Project Assistant
