KIDS ARE KINGS

The project commissioned by Gail Pickering, an artist based in London, relates to an archive of material related to a community television project which operated briefly in France in the mid-1970s. This was based in a new town which housed predominantly  working class community of Algerians, Morrocans and French residents.

Slum TV parallels this post-68 social model, a mirror in many ways of its core philosophy. Slum TV presented a film for exhibition, a sort of rearticulation of the archival material. Co-directed by Idah Opollo and Esther Waweru, the project is a deep concept close to Slum TV and Slum TV was happy to take part in the same.
