Event description
Multi award-winning film director John Goldschmidt will share his memories of working on the film that launched his film and TV career.

About this event

My Little Grey Home in the West is an intimate portrait of the residents at Newington Lodge in Walworth, South London. The former public institution for the homeless was the location for Ken Loach’s film ‘Cathy Come Home’ and Goldschmidt’s film was probably the last to be made at the lodge before it's demolition in 1969. The film secured Goldschmidt's MA at the Royal College of Arts and launched his career as a documentary producer/director at Granada TV, Thames TV, and BBC TV. Soon after, Goldschmidt moved on to dramas inspired by trued stories like 'Spend Spend Spend' (1977) and then to European co-productions and to theatrical films like 'Dough' (2015).

This event will include a screening of the film and a Q&A.
