Iain Sinclair's "America Ground " and the film "The UK Gold"

If you missed the OPEN film and poetry event at Café Oto last December, with Iain Sinclair and William Taylor, you can catch up now. Obtain a copy here of the film "The UK Gold" which exposes the City of London Corporation's demonic complicity in corporate exploitation worldwide by the use of tax avoidance and tax havens. It features William Taylor who this week won election to the City as Labour's first sucessful candidate.

 'Best Documentary' at London's 2013 East End film festival.  Mark Donne's  film "The UK Gold"  You can order your copy here.  "A shining piece of film-making on the darkness at the heart of the City....this is a film no-one should avoid" Daily Mirror.

At the OPEN event we also heard Iain Sinclair read from his latest work "American Smoke" and describe the beat poets he met on his wanderings. Iain also performed, in collaboration with Bill Parry-Davies on tenor saxophone, an extract from the book, "America Ground", which tells of an historic declaration of independence for occupied land in Hastings. You can hear that, and more of Iain and Bill's collaborations, here , including  Mike Well's short film "Gold Dust" about the reckless exhumation of radioactive waste on London's 2012 Olympic Park
