‘The Houseless Shadow’ a short film by LCC Reader in Film William Raban has received a glowing reviews from the Evening Standard, Times Higher and Radio 4s Today programme.
Commissioned by the Museum of London for the much anticipated ‘Dickens and London’ exhibition, the film explores the similarities of today’s London by night and the London by night described by Dickens over 150 years ago through his book, ‘Night Walks’.
Reviews hint at Raban’s film as being one of the exhibition highlights, with Times Higher saying: “It’s a good idea to begin the new Dickens and London exhibition right at the end, where William Raban’s short film The Houseless Shadow runs on a 20-minute loop.”
The exhibition opens today (9 December) and can be seen until 10 June 2012. If you get a chance, go. In the meantime here are some reviews to whet your appetite.
