Following on from his acclaimed Routes: Dancing to New Orleans (2008, screened at DANCE:FILM 09), Alex Reuben brings NEWSREEL 1 to Cameo and DANCE:FILM 11. Newsreel 1 is London turned inside out. A treasure hunt navigated by dance, sound, rivers and improvisation. Produced with the tight turnaround that digital production allows, the film is created right up to the moment of projection. Cultural, social and political events are filmed by Reuben – the motion of marching bodies, improvised music, dance and live art - to create vibrant, life-affirming cinema.
