Miles of Life: Five short films of Lives Lived in London

As part of Digital Doors Open, the AlvegoRoot Theatre ensemble presents five short films about people and places important to the cultural memory, life and history of London spanning over 100 years, written and directed by Adam Corrigan Holowitz. Travel back in time from your screen! Meet Josiah Blackburn at the Marienbad Restaurant and hear the story of how the London Free Press began. Then, in the Peel House at Fanshawe Pioneer Village, sculptor Mildred Peel tells about her art career as she navigates sexism and the shadow of her younger, more-famous brother. Poet Arthur Stringer, from the porch of his childhood home, recounts his lifelong infatuation with the ideal of romance. At the former Western Counties Health and Occupational Centre, you will hear the story of the veterans who lived there as they recovered from the Second World War. The journey concludes at the Hyland Cinema, meeting a woman who shares how the movies played an important role in her teenage years.
