Five students from the city’s UWE university have made a short film telling the story of the Bristol Pound and how it’s had an impact on local businesses.
The film is a project by students Mei Davidson, Beth Miskin-Garside, Eve Dolman-Bowles, Megan Grindle and Nathalie Kupper Mccarrick who are all studying Graphic Design at UWE.
They were asked to create a short documentary on the stories that exist within Bristol that connect to a wider political, social and cultural context.
Mei Davidson said: “We decided to focus on the Bristol Pound because we thought that this was something very important to Bristol and is a response to the wider economical situation. Also, as a group of students who have lived elsewhere for most our lives, we knew very little about the Bristol Pound so it was an exciting opportunity for us to learn about it and talk to people in the community about it.”
The students’ film is being screened at the Watershed on the Harbourside at 11am on Wednesday 27 April.
