Built in 1962 as an answer to local overcrowding and slum conditions in tenements, Leith’s Cables Wynd housing estate, known locally as the Banana Flats, became notorious as the crime-ridden center of Europe’s heroin epidemic in the 1980s. In 2015, it sits down the street from two Michelin starred restaurants. The film follows a local photographer and former resident who is embarking on a quest to document the triumphs and tragedies that exist inside each of the estate’s 204 flats.

Showing with Tapes From The Revolutionary, The Third Dad, United We Will Swim... Again, A Wee Night In and Mining Poems Or Odes.
