10 years in the making

Waterloo Sunset

Programme Type: Film|Length: 90 mins| Cert:

Poignant, moving and uplifting, Waterloo Sunset is a documentary about the elderly residents who live at the remarkable Hopton’s Almshouse, beside The Thames. Built in 1752 for the borough’s poor, the occupants - many in their 80s and 90s - now find themselves living in one of London’s most sought-after locations, dwarfed by luxury apartments and towering glass skyscrapers.

Over the course of one summer, filmmaker Harvey Marcus discovers a story of a community battling with regeneration, change and what it means to grow old in today’s Britain, but also a tale of hope, wisdom and inspiration - epitomised by 92 year old Yogi, Jenny, and the incorrigible crooner Shamus, who despite his 76 years and various ailments, still dreams of pop stardom. This is a coming of age story with a difference.

We are delighted to welcome director, Harvey Marcus, for a post screening Q&A.
