Hackney Life



Hackney Life - Mosaic Films (Large)

Hackney Life is a crowdsourced documentary, made from video contributions from all across the borough as part of Hackney Museum’s Mapping The Change project. The project explored the changes happening to the area in the lead up to the Summer 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Narrated by young Hackney resident Jerelle Okoro, the film explores the varying perceptions of the area and its rich history.

Mosaic Films launched an open call for submissions in early 2012, based on a brief drawn up in consultation with Hackney people. The film premiered at the main exhibition for Mapping The Change at Hackney Museum in May 2012.

Producer/ Director: Kerry McLeod
