New Town Utopia (15)



Documentary (2017)
81mins UK

Starring: Terry Bird, Vincent O'Connell, Jim Broadbent
Director: Christopher Ian Smith
Writer(s): Christopher Ian Smith
Listings: London | Rest of UK and Ireland

Funded in part through a campaign on a crowdfunding website, this documentary shines a light on the new town of Basildon, Essex and the various artists, musicians and poets, who collectively take responsibility for firing the area's creative soul. Built in the aftermath of the Second World War as part of a government initiative to create towns that inspired civic pride, Basildon is now 60 years young but it bears little resemblance to the flourishing hub of beauty and culture that the designers promised.
