Hi High Rise was our first short film and was funded by Arts Council England and City South Manchester Housing Trust.

A film about people, preconceptions and 1960’s concrete this documentary aims to challenge the preconceptions associated with tower block living in the UK and celebrates the successful community of Hornchurch Court, a high rise on the edge of Manchester city centre.

Hi High Rise was selected for the London Documentary Film Festival, was exhibited for 6 months in Manchester Art Gallery and has since travelled to festivals as far a field as India and South America. 

It was also selected by the British Council for its Short Film Promotion Scheme in 2011.
