This Town (1969) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1971 , Programme 34)
Director: Hugh Evans

Large areas of a once-prosperous mill town in Yorkshire are facing demolition, and many inhabitants are being moved to new housing nearby. The proliferation of 19th Century houses and factories still survives as living evidence of the town's boom during the Industrial Revolution. It remains to be seen whether the changes bring about new life or gradual immolation.
