Rising Rents are Destroying the Social Fabric of Our Cities

With this film, I'm trying to tell a wider story about what is happening to my city through the inspiring words and passion of Vanessa Garrett, owner of Food For Thought in Covent Garden, London. I first visited the restaurant with my mother in the 80's and it has remained something to be celebrated - as much for the quality and accessibility of the food as the ethos behind it.

In terms of style, I like to tell stories through picture as much as narrative and watching this back I've realised how much I've moved away from the MTV generation style quick cuts and spoon feeding everything to the audience.

If you stay with it, all will become clear! Thanks for watching.
