Saint Etienne Live: How We Used to LiveN/C 12+


In 2013 British director Paul Kelly teamed up with much-loved electro pop trio Saint Etienne to create this elegant and evocative film about the UK’s capital. Narrated by Ian McShane, the film uses coloured archive footage from the 1950s through to the 1980s to portray the ‘New Elizabethan’ age – from the optimistic post-war era to the dawn of Thatcherism. When paired with Saint Etienne’s enigmatic score, the result is a striking and rousing look at a city that is constantly changing whilst staying the same at its core. In collaboration with Monorail Film Club.
