UK filmmaker Winstan Whitter has teamed up with LLSB and AHRC-funded project ‘You Can’t Move History, You Can Secure The Future’ to present a new film dubbed ‘You Can’t Move History’ – a story on the campaign to save the Southbank Undercroft.
Speaking to some of the locals skaters including filmmaker Henry Edwards-Wood, as well as the lawyers and activists who contributed to the cause, Whitter builds the story of London’s most notorious skate spot, it’s resonance with generations of skateboarders and the struggle that everyone went through to preserve the space for its community.

Along with being deeply involved with the Long Live Southbank campaign, Henry Edwards-Wood delivers his latest edit entitled Innocence and Experience.
The short film documents the ever changing face of London skateboarding and features a plethora of UK and European skateboarders including Kyrone Davis, Lucien Clarke, Blondey McCoy, Casper Brooker, Nick Jensen, Sylvian Tognelli, introducing Domas Glatkauskas and many more.
The culturally diverse city draws influence, experiences and styles from across the globe, and along with its unique terrain it is one of the most vibrant and individual scenes in the world, with a rich history in skateboarding.
The latest instalment in the independent Hold Tight London series, contrasts the new faces with the more established heads that emerged earlier in the series. With the big smoke as its back drop this awesome short film presents a gritty yet refreshing take on one of the most exciting and documented cities in the world.
