A series of chance and fleeing encounters becomes an epic journey of moods set in the London Underground.

Underground seeks to document a memory of a moment in time and place, this being the period before and after the London Underground bombings of July 7th 2005. The original project began as a short documentary art project of the London Underground several weeks before the bombings in 2005. The conditions after the bombings led to the project being set aside. In the last year, the director returned to the footage wanting to make a record of a mood or feeling of the time – if not an official record, a trace of something intangible or inherent about the time, which seems to persist into the present. The intention was to evoke a contradictory set of moods such as: anxiety and freedom, inwardness and empathy, freedom and constraint, leading to the question of what happens next? The film walks us back into the past through a series of chance and fleeting encounters, pulling us into the currents and rhythms of collective consciousness, always compelled by the imminent and the unknown.
