American experimental film-maker Bill Morrison explored the fragility of film in his 2002 decay-of-celluloid meditation DECASIA. His latest film explores the history and legacy of the northeastern England mining community of Durham. Morrison pieces together a collage of archive material spanning 100 years – from early grainy footage through to the pitched battles with police during the 1984 strike as Thatcher’s government sounded the death knell for the industry. Acclaimed Icelandic musician and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score draws upon the region’s brass music and perfectly complemnets this haunting, beautiful elegy to a bygone era.
