A documentary or a fiction. A fictional document.

Ben ‘Connor and photographer Richard Burton have, for the last two years been researching the history of the seven new towns built around the circumference of London in the 1950s . Here in this film, and through the history of the new towns, they explore the story of post war British modernism and by default the history of post war Britian itself.

Part distopian vision of a future ruin, part social document of the now. New Town explores the death of British modernism and it’s incompatibility with the contemporary British capitalism that surrounds us today.
