Angel Meadow: The Forgotten Genesis

A student Documentary that evaluates the story, the impact, and the tragedy of Angel Meadow (an area based in Manchester)

This Documentary questions the importance of Mancunian history and how society can remember specific historical events and, simultaneously, forget other important events. We explore the themes of remembrance and evolution by interviewing casual historians and displaying their raw emotional reactions and ideas about the subject of Angel Meadow.

Director Statement

This film was created as a project for my Documentary module at the University of Salford.
I have always had a fascination with the darker side of history and wanted to tell an unknown story. When I found out about the subject of Angel Meadow. I was motivated to cover this subject and why it's been forgotten.
This project would not have been completed without the help of my crew. Their contributions, talents, and patience were incredible.

I hope you will enjoy it.
