Rooftop screening of Julien Temple’s London – The Modern Babylon (15)

London - The Modern Babylon is legendary director Julien Temple's epic time-travelling voyage to the heart of his hometown.

From musicians, writers and artists to dangerous thinkers, political radicals and above all ordinary people, this is the story of London's immigrants, its bohemians and how together they changed the city forever. Reaching back to London at the start of the 20th century, the story unfolds through film archive and the voices of Londoners past and present, powered by the popular music across the century. It ends now, as London prepares to welcome the world to the 2012 Olympics.

London - The Modern babylon is presented by the De La Warr Pavilion as part of a series of special one-off pop events for the London 2012 Festival, the spectacular 12-week nationwide celebration running from Midsummers Day on 21 June until the final day of the Paralympic Games on 9 September.
