HCCT Long Take film

HCCT certainly do slow cinema!  Kate McLaughlin, tutor and film-maker with a group of men who meet at the Holy Cross Community Trust centre in Kings Cross, have just completed their long take film ‘The Wronged Man’.

The brief for the ‘Plan Sequence’ film essai was to include a long take where the camera ‘becomes autonomous, making an emotional impression on the audience.’  In the HCCT film, the camera moves from a distressing Job Centre interview for our protagonist, then leaves him behind, alighting on a couple of property speculators talking about the money to be made in the block that The Wronged Man is being evicted from.  The film fulfills the brief and more: the ‘autonomous shot’ is a political and dramatic move, leaving behind a character who has been left behind by society.
