Subverting the City: A Mis-Guide to Milton Keynes
(filmed January 2005 / first broadcast February 2005)
Blindfolded and driven to the outskirts of Milton Keynes before
daybreak, we drifted into a city that none of us knew, searching for its heart, whilst accompanied
by a TV crew. Included in our discoveries were an edgeland cathedral,
a fleet of discarded fairground attractions and an icy, artificial ski-slope.
Subverting The City was a series of four
short documentaries, made for Channel 4's 3 Minute Wonder slot.
It explored how four different groups of artists/thinkers challenge the prescribe meaning
of city life and use the city as a stage from which to question and
challenge the powers that be. The
Space Hijackers, Climbing Club & the
Office for Subversive Architecture also featured.
Directed & edited by Dan Edelstyn. Produced by Optimistic
Productions & Fulcrum TV for Channel 4.
