In this clip, Mark talks about the SLDG13 Manifesto that he published 01.01.13, what it is, and how it relates to the production of Bronco’s House.

'Cape Cornwall Calling / all the white horses' was the first film made according to the strict rules of the manifesto. It screened in competition recently at the 15th Festival des Cinémas Différents et Expérimentaux de Paris in October 2013.

NEW REWARD | ‘After Ethel & Ernest, page 10 (Generation rent: Generation trapped)’ Painting by Daryl Waller

PAINTING | ‘After Ethel & Ernest, page 10 (Generation rent: Generation trapped)’

by Daryl Waller (17x26cm)

Pledge £300 or more...

London based Cornish artist Daryl Waller has very kindly donated a recently completed painting to our crowdfunding campaign.

Daryl says of his painting, “A re-contextualising of a page found in the Raymond Briggs book ‘Ethel & Ernest’. I read this book one evening last week and, amongst other things, it documents the birth of the welfare state. Now that welfare state is being pushed back, first by New Labour and now, more aggressively, by the Conservatives (Liberal Democrat Coalition agreement). We are the ‘trapped in shared housing generation’. Rents are not being capped, landlords and estate agents are out of control and go unregulated. Something needs to be done, it’s impossible to get on with “life” whilst living in this country (UK).”
