FILM: John Ledger
Lost Bus Routes and Pre-Election Rambles is a spoken word account of a series of rambles myself and a friend, Michael Hill, did around former mining villages we grew up in, on the eve of the 2015 general election.
The villages straggle along the West/South Yorkshire border, and have become half forgotten/half commuter dormitories over the recent decades. The idea was that walk through old haunts, would aid that of conjuring a once-felt optimism for a different sort of future that we had as children.
