You Can’t Move History – Southbank Documentary

Winstan Whitter – filmmaker, London skate historian and the brains behind the incredible Rolling Through the Decades – has teamed up with LLSB and AHRC-funded project ‘You Can’t Move History, You Can Secure┬áThe Future’ to put together a film about Southbank, its resonance with generations of skateboarders and the recent battle to save the space from development.

Featuring interviews with not only some of the skaters who have frequented over the years (such as Jason Caines, Jenna Selby, Domas Glatkauskas, Joey Pressey, Henry Edwards-Wood and Louis Woodhead), but also the lawyers, community activists and other assorted behind the scenes types who helped keep the space safe for skateboarders, this is well worth putting the kettle on and kicking back for. And, with the new obstacles put in last week only adding to the Undercroft’s grimy allure, get down this winter and remind yourself of why it has such a legendary status!
