On the Ground at Grenfell
On Monday 29th January 2018, Alice Elliot, Department of Anthropology, organised a special film screening of On the Ground at Grenfell which was followed by a Q&A with 3 of the filmmakers, Samiah Anderson, Swarzy Macaly, and Nendie Pinto-Duschinsky. On the Ground at Grenfell is a film made by 9 young people, all of whom are survivors, local residents and volunteers.
At the time of Grenfell, Stowe Films (a collective of filmmakers who met at The Stowe Youth Club 10 years ago) were making a film about the closure of the youth club when the Grenfell Tower broke out in fire, causing 71 deaths and leaving many injured and homeless. The fire directly affected members of the team therefore, they began recording testimonies of survivors, residents and volunteers, reporting and capturing unedited recordings of the atmosphere after the fire. It became the filmmakers mission to capture what the media were failing to- to give a voice to survivors and give recognition to the true heroes following on from events that took place after the fire.
