In commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the inaugural Long Live Southbank campaign film "40 Years Later" and the 10th year of the HTL London scene archiving project in general, the auteur formerly known as Henry Edwards-Wood has put together his favourite and most potent pickings from the Mary Poppins bag that is the Archigram CTU central video archives.
Featuring skateboarding and chivalry from crews and independents such as Theobalds Cap Co., Reup Hardware Co., BMT and the Real LLSB, this film sets out to keep alight the torch that Emeka lit at the Declaration of Preservation 2014 (see The House Of Reup) and to preserve invaluable Lambeth skate folklore during the oncoming Olympic siege that lies perilously ahead in a potentially turbulent chapter in the Hold Tight London saga.

If you ever moved a mile you will find out that travelling equals freedom and friendship. Farid Ulrich and Vincent Heller have made many friends all over the globe, some they met at home in Berlin and others they stumbled upon during their own tours, trips and movements.
Naturally, when friendship blooms, an invitation is made either out of politeness or out of need (wanting to hang out). Farid and Vincent are famous for extending their hand and taking people in, but as all travellers do they need to leave home ever so often. So they saved up and decided to do a "Grand Tour" of all their friends in South-America.
First stop, the Republic of Chile, and Alvaro Galarce, Christian „Maluco“ Elizondo, Matthias Torres, Eduardo „El Gato“ Garcia and Max Kani all got a visit from the two high flying Berliners.
We are done talking and if you want to know more simply press play!
Back in 2014 Eniz Fazliov, Rob Maatman, Aref Koushesh & Nisse Ingemarsson spent some days in northern Italy for an Emerica tour, we had the pleasure to drive them around and skate together with them. One of the photos taken during the week become cover of a brief glance issue 28 in which there was a full article about the mission. Master lens Andrew Zolin was with us to film "second angles" and collected a lot of sick clips. The "official edit" never came out, so after four years, he decided to edit the footage he had in his hard drive and sent us this gem. Thanks Andrew.
