​Artist filmmaker William Raban was a central figure of the London Film-makers’ Co-operative (LFMC). Initially known for his landscape and expanded cinema works of the 1970s, Raban’s films from the 1990s onwards look at the island of Britain and its people, in the context of the global economy and the effects of urban change.

Rooted in the formal preoccupations of the avant-garde, Sarah Turner’s work spans single-screen gallery pieces and feature-length projects that explore the interplay between abstraction and narration. Turner was a student of Raban’s at Saint Martins School of Art and was also involved with the LFMC.

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the London Film-makers’ Co-op (LFMC), a ground-breaking organisation that inaugurated a tradition for the production, distribution, and exhibition of artists’ moving image in the United Kingdom that remains vibrant today.
