The View From My Window Tells Me I’m Home

The View From My Window Tells Me I’m Home
Dir Esther Johnson, UK, 2010, 46mins

A documentary portrait and social record of the lives of ten residents of the Golden Lane Estate, London. The film looks at the life of the complex over the half a century since its construction. It poses questions about domestic and private space and of making a home in a distinctive architectural environment.

Publica is pleased to announce the launch of a new Film of the Month programme. Each month we will be highlighting selected documentaries, features and short films and posting other information and links. 

Curated by the Publica Film Unit, the programme will celebrate thought-provoking and innovative ways of looking at cities and the experiences of urban living. 

Some of the films we choose will reflect projects Publica is involved in or places in which we have worked. Therefore to compliment our current work for the City of London in the Barbican and Golden Lane area, our January 2015 launch films are:

Barbicania, Directed by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine and The View From My Window Tells Me I’m Home Directed by Esther Johnson.
