    We've had the photos, the demos, the short films and the pages and pages of rants here - and now here's the feature film.

    Didn't get that - was it whimsical humour? It sounds as though the full film would be watchable. When and where is it on?

    Nice use of Brixton East as her flat.

    Reviewed in Guardian.

    Im curious to see it.

    Review contrasts it with Ken Loach ( whose latest film won Cannes and is out today) - citing the formal differences. Ken coming from a social realist angle. This film does sound like its not just a straightforward narrative but mixes different kinds of film and music together. ie documentary and drama.

    "Gentrification", that is the kicking out of the less well off from areas, has not been covered in film. And this sounds to me like a film rather than a tv doc.

    I've just watched it. It's a bit patchy and could use some editing. Some interesting ideas in there though.

    what kind of ideas were in it? is it worth watching?
    ive just watched the trailer above and all the trailer showed was stylish shots of brixton that only help to glamourise the there any teeth to this film at all?
    From the guardian review:"it is inspired by her complex feelings about returning to the area after a long spell in hipster east London. Is she herself – young, arty, stylish – a gentrifier?"....whats the answer to that editor? Judging by the trailer id say yes...

    Caught this at the LFF. The glamour is in the lead actress who isn't a believable documentary maker. The film is about making a film, that old post modern idea ! It's a bit preachy but the scenes with the community groups are good.
