Burning Pool is a 24-minute film capturing Sheffield as a post-industrial city in transition – a lot of the featured buildings and landscapes are now gone or radically altered. It was created as a response to the DIY ethic of the local music scene between 1979-81 and also explores the hauntological notion of “future ghosts”.
