Late at Night - Voices of Ordinary Madness

  • slideshow_large

Xiaolu Guo Productions 2013

Synopsis

Introduced by a Warhol-esque newsreader, Late at Night presents the voices of a number of Londoners - working class people, street gang members, beggars, bankers and others, most of them excluded from the area they live in, the newly gentrified London East End.
Their words build a network of responses to the hyper capitalist world we live in.
As George Orwell said: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.”  
Focusing on Britain’s relentlessly mean streets and its dwellers, each fighting their ground in their own way, this film essay uses words, writing and images to construct an image of today’s Britain and leads us to question our future under the institutional madness of global capitalism. http://www.guoxiaolu.com
