Listeners Project began with a poem, Walter De La Mare's "The Listeners", it was part of the inspiration for our first four filmmakers at the house in Clapton. Poems are still often used as a starting point for each new film location but since then we've also invited some of London's current poets and storytellers to interpret the walls of the locations in their own way and perform live at the film screenings.
The Mannequin Factory
Megan Beech, Erin Bolens, Conrad Gamble, Miguel Cullen were all invited in to the Rootstein Mannequin Factory to create four poems inspired by this interesting location in Spring 2016.
