Folly for a Flyover & It's Nice That

Posted by Maya Davies,

A great opportunity to tell you about a brilliant project and also something we’ve been involved in. Assemble, the collective that wowed us last summer with Cineroleum, have designed and built a folly located in the undercroft of the A12 by the river Lea in Hackney Wick, opening this week. It will be hosting a programme of films and events in conjunction with the Barbican’s Watch Me Move animation season. We were invited to curate a series of shorts screening this Saturday. Not one to miss! Get tickets here.
