Opening Night Gala: The UK Gold

All eyes were on East London in 2012. Since that summer of glory, gold medals and diamond jubilation, questions have been raised as to what kind of legacy recession-hit Britain has really inherited.

Narrated by actor Dominic West (The Wire, The Hour), and featuring an extraordinary new sound-score from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, The UK Gold follows the dramatic journey of a vicar from the Olympic host, riot-scarred borough of Hackney as the narrative travels from Zambia to Salisbury and the Caribbean to Clapton to understand the full impact of UK financial chicanery.

With the views and voices of British politicians, hedge fund masters of the universe,Vanity Fair investigative journalist Nicolas Shaxson, Private Eye’s Richard Brooks and Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow, it exposes the fundamental role the City of London plays in the secretive network of tax havens and tax avoidance.

Screening at the Art Deco Troxy, this unique red carpet gala screening will be followed by some very special live performances from the likes of Anthony Rossomando, Public Service Broadcasting, and DJ sets from Ben John Power (F**k Buttons) and Mark Stewart (The Pop Group).
