This year it’s the 10th anniversary of the East End Film Festival, and having been in the area quite a while, we’ve decided to get involved. Next Monday, Mother will be transformed into one of the venues for the festival as part of it’s ‘Movie May Day’ on Monday 2 May.
We’ll be open from noon to 8pm and showing a programme of the best short films from the year, and at 6pm we’ve got a bit of a special treat – we’ll be showing our very own film – East London to East London – a documentary about our football team’s trip to South Africa at the height of the World Cup last year.
Usually Mother likes to commemorate every World Cup in its own special way from diving winkers to world cup sushi but last year, we did something a little different.
After discovering that no World Cup matches would be played in the South African city of East London, we decided to send our own football team to challenge the local townships in that area of South Africa. The Mother team was comprised of people from across all the Mother offices, and what started as a five day trip turned into something with a lasting legacy. The trip out there and all the matches were filmed and made into East London to East London, our very own film (thanks to the lovely people at Hungryman)
So come along, and watch with Mother. It’s free – so there’s no excuse not to come.
