Losing the Marshes

A story of what happens when the Olympics comes to town. The Olympic Games and the attendant juggernaut of its needs will threaten an area rich in history and loved by its community and visitors from the rest of London. Hackney has its own unique qualities, a wealth of community projects and a history of great significance and symmetry with today and the prescience for the behemoth of the Olympics, steadily rolling into view.

So often large projects like the Olympic Games ignore and are ignorant of the smaller more inclusive projects existing in areas inhabited by huge Olympic venues. The rational that it is “for the greater good” is often quoted. These ignore the cohesive effect that small unique projects, not run for profit, have in defining and unifying an area.

Documentary Film 2x 52minutes series. Produced & Directed By Kym Oeser.
