James Massiah pays homage to an overlooked symbol of British life in new short film KX100

We’re excited to be premiering a new short-film from director Will Dohrn.

Poet, artist and producer James Massiah narrates a new short-film from director Will Dohrn. Inspired by the rapid disappearance of phone booths across the country, KX100 sees Massiah recount an imagined social history, conjuring tales of illicit acts and illegal advertisements organised with the anonymity of a public phone. As the film progresses things spiral out further, and Massiah laments the paradoxes of modern connectivity, asking ‘when was the last time you called your Grandma?’

The short film was shot in Bristol for Channel 4 with the assistance of Crack Productions. Watch it in the player above.
