London Takes Gold

London Takes Gold from Marie Billegrav Bryant on Vimeo.

London Takes Gold is an antidote to Olympic propaganda.

London 2012 organisers fear everything – streakers, terrorists, ambush marketeers, brand hijackers, space hijackers, real hijackers, ticket touts, Olympic flame firefighters, dog walkers, Tibetans, and survivors of Olympic sponsor Dow Chemical, everyone except the VIPs is on the list of suspects.

This film plots local opposition to the construction of Olympic buildings on public parkland and also examines controversy over Olympic sponsors.

While on location shooting footage for this film at Leyton Marsh, Mike Wells was arrested and spent the following 8 days in prison. The authorities were unwilling to grant bail as they claimed he would make mischief in relation the Olympic Project if released. Under his bail conditions, which he believes have been used as a political instrument, he is banned from the proximity of Olympic venue/s.
