Abstract or Description

This article centers the methodological need to study both (a) social scenes and (b) social cinema scenes to elucidate a much more complicated sense for understanding how cities and space are inhabited, produced, and invented. Using a practice based method of research, it utilizes aural and visual methods to revisit how we approach and conceptualize postwar lives in the United Kingdom, beyond the limits of an either—or analysis of celebration or trauma and victimhood.
