The film, made by Sheffield-based filmmaker Smart Banda and featuring an original poem and score by poet Otis Mensah and Site Gallery’s young people’s group Society of Explorers, is part of the Future of the High Streets film series, organised by Historic England as part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme.

Using the score as a starting point, Smart Banda developed a comprehensive visual concept for Mensah’s work. This informed a series of 35mm black and white images captured by photographer Peter Martin, taken of high streets around Sheffield.
