Production support


Hackney Fandango is a short documentary charting a day in the life of one dancer in east London through the different dance forms practised in the area. An updating of colourful Hollywood musicals, a day-in-the-life romp like Jacques Tati’s Playtime, a heaven-to-hell journey influenced by Victorian tableau paintings, Hackney Fandango is a 24-hour voyage through London’s East End, featuring the area’s real venues, dancers and events.
