Esther Johnson’s ‘Chalk Trace’ screenings
Chalk Trace is a short film by Sheffield Hallam University’s Esther Johnson (Reader in Media Arts and Principal Lecturer in Film & Media Production). It is a short Random Act film for Film London and Channel 4.
As a child in the 1950s, Ron Cockroft drew a chalk line from his school in Oldham to his home in Chadderton. Chalk Trace commemorates and reanimates his graffiti journey through a now much-changed network of streets. The film was photographed in the original streets of Oldham as they stand today – over 60 years after Ron’s original graffiti.
Chalk Trace has been selected for screening at the following:
