THE SOHO A GOGO FILM FESTIVAL, REGENT STREET CINEMA, LONDON, April 28th to May 1st

 Have you turn the clock back half a century and see Soho as it was then? This festival will actually give you that opportunity.

The six films to be shown celebrate Soho’s musical and artistic heritage in the years after the War and the gradual change that took place in an area known for its entertainment.

Beginning with the documentary “Bunch of Kunst” – inspired by the Nottingham Duo “Seaford Mods” – the films will show the controversies and changes associated with art in that period. Multiculturalism is explored in “All Night Long”, and the exhausting fight for dreams and success recounted in “The Small World of Sammy Lee”. Racial tensions are addressed more in “Absolute beginners”.
