Presented by Heavenly Films

How We Used To Live is a unique celebration of post-war London by acclaimed director Paul Kelly, created through a compelling use of rare footage drawn from the BFI National Archive.

With a narration by Ian McShane and an original score composed by Saint Etienne, How We Used To Live is alluringly impressionistic, poetical and political.  Perhaps the most joyful, creative and entertaining offering to come from this unique film making collective.

Followed by a Q&A with director Paul Kelly and writer/author Travis Elborough hosted by author Cathi Unsworth.

Preceded by the short film Weather The Storm, 36mins (2017)

The stark beauty of Shetland in winter provides the perfect backdrop for a couple in search of reconnection. Soundtracked by Skylark and the Scorpion (aka Nick J. Webb and Petra Jean Phillipson).
