What’s Going On – The Dinner Party (Chris Saleswicz) 45 mins
Aghast at a world in which our lives had become dominated by Brexit, the Wall, knife crime, the Grenfell and Windrush scandals, the enigma of Jeremy Corbyn, and a ceaseless array of further Babylonian sins, some friends of mine and myself got together on 16 April of this year to have dinner and consider these issues of the age, as well as the best way to cook cowfoot. We filmed it: What’s Going On: the Dinner Party. What emerges is a snapshot of Britain on a specific day: we try to penetrate what we are really thinking…With a few jokes.
‘You know what this is?’ said Bradley Richards, the editor, as we worked on the final scene. ‘It’s an art-house movie.’
