'It's kind of a secret name, that nobody really talks about unless you were pretty much born and bred or brought up or know someone that lives around here'

The Lights of Flushing by Anna Snowball (1989) is a beautifully shot documentary that takes the reader deep into the coastal village of Flushing in Cornwall, exploring it's local rituals and traditions. We join the villagers as they discuss their pasts, present and futures whilst hanging the annual Christmas Lights, which are used to remember previous residents.

Produced by the British Film Institute in 2012 as part of the Doc Next Media Lab scheme.
