NORTH (1987) 40 minutes Channel Four
Documentary about the North East of England, where unemployment is soaring, and a solution to the problem is nowhere in sight. Once the rivers of North East England teemed with industry and were the Empire's arteries. Now they drain a dying landscape. But, geographical divisions only compound those of class. NORTH is a visual essay set to music; a colourful montage of images of the region and combibned to explore its history.
