The 7/7 Requiem Film is a prayer for peace for the 52 souls who lost their lives in the 2005 London Bombings. Directed by Russell Square film-maker Kathy Hill with Requiem sung by Renata Jonscher.

The Bloomsbury Festival - London 20-22 October 2006

Director Kathy Hill submitted this film for screening at the Bloomsbury Festival Film Competition

It was deemed unworthy to be entered in the competition for these rather puzzling reasons expressed by a representative of the Renoir Cinema:

"We felt that 07/07 Requiem seemed unfinished. It had a shot of the tube station, a shot of people putting flowers on the ground and then it went on a loop, back to the first shot - it looked like the first minutes of a longer piece. Perhaps if you include more shots with other angles or images, or some text, something to give the film some content then it could work. The music is quite beautiful and it is important that you deal with the tragedy that happened in the area not long ago, but it should be longer/have more content."

It turned out that the reviewer had inserted the DVD and mistaken the menu that came up for the actual film! They added (wrongly) "it was a faulty DVD" and "there is no blame to be taken by the festival." We complained about this but they never retracted their comments and the film was not screened.

It's a shame that no-one got to see the movie at the festival, so feel free to watch the movie for yourself and send us a comment in our guestbook!
