  • Our London Lives follows filmmaker Paul Atherton's son Charles as he visits London to see his father over 16 years. The film is split into 7 sections each focusing on an aspect of Paul and Charles' time together and their activities in London. Each section of the film starts when Charles is 6 years old (2005) and ends 10 years later when he is 16 (2015). The film provides a sense of the hustle and bustle of London, family outings in the captial and a sense of growing up as we see Charles age and grow across the period of filming. The film is a form of video diary that is very common today.
