Flood Light – Constantine Gras


11 short films will be screened as part of a Flood Light programme at the Portobello Film Festival on Wednesday 15 September at 6pm. The venue is Inn on the Green, 3 Thorpe Close, under the Westway and a few minutes walk from Ladbroke Grove tube station. It is a free event.

Flood Light was a film making project run by Constantine Gras as part of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea’s InTRANSIT festival of arts and was supported by the V&A Museum. Flood Light invited filmmakers to connect with the Grand Union Canal and Westway, two inter-related transport and built structures in North Kensington. 8 short films were submitted by established or emerging filmmakers and a panel selected Intersections by Rickster as the best film. Constantine lead two practical filmmaking guided tours for residents of the borough who had the opportunity to edit their footage at the V&A Museum’s Sackler Centre for Education. For his own personal film project, Constantine undertook 6 months of archive research using the cultural resources of the V&A Museum, London Canal Museum, London Metropolitan Archives and the British Museum.
