Amber return to the Folk Film Gathering with two documentaries about The
Byker estate in Newcastle, based upon the work of celebrated

memory, portraiture and music to document the changing experiences
facing communities in inner city Newcastle. Introduced with North
England folk songs from Sean Paul Newman, followed by a Q&A with
Sirkka-Liisa Kontinnen and Peter Roberts.
