ourscreen: Brighton Symphony Of A City

Duration: 48 min

This cinematic portrait of Brighton, in all its bohemian, and campaigning glory, darts between past present and is set to a sumptuous orchestral score. 'Father Neptune' is dunked in a raucous 1951 ritual, 1930s marchers celebrate the Soviet Union. Today’s residents parade at Pride and commemorate Gaza. The elegant ferris wheel marks the passage of time, and this day-in-a-life culminates in astounding puppetry and the winter festival, 'The Burning of the Clocks'. A Brighton Festival Commission. Supported by Screen Archive South East, The University of Sussex and Sea Life Centre.
