Watch Almost Liverpool 8 at FACT Picturehouse
This new film showing the real Liverpool 8 has been made after filmmakers were inspired by a black and white photo from the 1970s.
Daniel Draper and Christie Allanson from Liverpool-based film company Shut Out the Light have created the 90-minute documentary featuring a series of snapshot interviews with people living in the area.
The idea for Almost Liverpool 8 came when Daniel visited an exhibition of photographs by Don McCullin at Tate Britain before it transferred up to Tate Liverpool.
