Currently screening at Cinema Village in New York City is London: The Modern Babylon, director Julien Temple’s epic time-traveling voyage to the heart of his hometown.
From musicians, writers and artists, to *dangerous* thinkers, political radicals and, above all, everyday people, the feature doc is the story of London’s immigrants and how together they changed the city forever, from the start of the 20th century, to the present day.
The story unfolds through film archives and voices of Londoners past and present, powered by the flow of popular music across the century.
