Abstract

Where We Were When We Bashed The Fash is a record of a history-walk undertaken to commemorate an anti-fascist demonstration in Lewisham during the 70’s. Those who had marched on the day retraced their steps, sharing memories and trying to identify the locations of dramatic flashpoints. My video is a record of these oral histories and the urban geography in which they are set. However I have subjected this raw ‘documentary’ footage to heavy postproduction, creating plumes of fake smoke and blurring the faces of the participants. Although sympathetic to the marchers, the video makes the point that representation is always skewed and ‘evident truths’ must continually be questioned and re-verified.
