Public House Portraits (12A*)

Artists in Residence

A portrait of a woman sits on a bar seat in a pub.

Three films exploring how public houses are used in the changing landscape of East London from the sixties until today.

Pub by Peter Davis is a short documentary made for Swedish TV at the Approach Tavern in Bethnal Green. Filmed when Leslie Heath was still landlord, The Last Pub by Donna Travis portrays the Anchor and Hope in Clapton twenty years before it appears in Therese Henningsen’s film After Time.

Henningsen documents the people and places she encountered at The Lock-In, artist Stanley Schtinter’s 96 hour edit of all the scenes shot inside BBC soap opera Eastenders’ Queen Vic Pub (1985-1995), which was shown on the television screens of ten ‘real’ East End pubs in June 2022.
