Woolfe.vision is proud to present a film about the Grenfell disaster.
On 22 June 2017, ASH [Architects for Social Housing ] called a meeting to discuss what really happened with the Grenfell Tower when it burned down on the 14th June. The human true toll is yet unknown. The discussion which follows not only highlights the technical causes but also the political and corporate failures of a system which is failing.
Here’s what was covered:
1Technical causes of the Grenfell Tower fire.
2 Bureaucratic and Political decisions that led to the Grenfell Tower fire.
3 The fire safety of Council Blocks
4 Opposing Estate Demolition and listening to Residents

A joint Production by Four Corners Film, St Martins and WoolfeVision.
About the film: The so called legal highs, now banned from shops are still rife in communities across the UK, yet too many people are still in the dark about the dangers associated with them. The ‘legal highs’
now illegal with the advent of the Psychoactive Substances Act in 2016 are also called Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPSes) NPS are drugs which were designed to replicate the effects of illegal substances like cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy.
“Dummies Guide to Spice and other Novel Psychoactive Substances” is made with the help from St Martins’ service users and experts to highlight the hazards that these substances pose when consumed. Including an interview with an ex-user:
“My tongue is all cut up…..”
“My family started avoiding me….”
“I spent 8 years in hospital….”
This film gives a much needed picture of the situation today in a brief and accessible format.Made for schools and other organisations who are struggling with the issues presented.
The experts who work at the forefront of NPS mis-use have plenty of harrowing stories and advide to give…
“Controlling it is going to come from informed choices…”
So why is it that every politician promises us more affordable housing and we end up getting less and less? The answer is viability assessments; the dark art of tweaking the numbers to make developments look less viable than they really are. The 35% Campaign and Woolfe.Vision have produced this short film explaining the basics of how developers cook the books and how they get away with it.
Produced by WV in association with 35% Campaign.
Directed by Rob Clayton. Shot & Edited by Nikita Woolfe
Rob Clayton went to photograph a housing estate in the Black Country, Birmingham 25 years ago. Rob then went back last year to visit the estate again. This film documents that visit and shows how little has changed for people in places like the Lion Farm Estate.
