Owen Hatherley
(Writer and Critic)

‘Architecture, Media and Politics’

'Bradford International Film Festival' talk

Wednesday 25 April 2012, 6pm, On Location, National Media Museum

In Lindsay Anderson's The White Bus, a vehicle carries middle class  
passengers around to see the parts of the city they usually ignore -  
factories, council estates, slums. In post-war cinema, the urban  
landscape of the North of England was intensely explored, as a place  
undergoing rapid modernisation and change, from the new housing  
estates of The White Bus to the technocratic new coffins in Billy  
Liar. By the 1970s, these had become unpleasant if often thrilling  
dystopias, in films like Get Carter or The Offence; but by the 1980s,  
in the likes of A Very British Coup, that same landscape could  
represent a space of resistance. Today, that space is evoked as  
ambiguous nostalgia, in the likes of This is England '86 or Red  
Riding; but there are few attempts to get to grips with the present  
urban landscape, and the perhaps equally drastic redevelopments of the  
last decade. This talk will consider a few examples and pose the  
question of why the contemporary architecture of the UK seems so  
unappealing for filmmakers.

Owen Hatherley is a regular contributor to Building Design, New  
Statesman and New Humanist and has also written for The Guardian,  
Icon, Socialist Worker and Socialist Review. His book A Guide to the  
New Ruins of Great Britain was published by Verso in 2010.
