People and Dancefloors: Narratives of Drug Taking

The research project, People and Dancefloors, is an attempt to tell the stories of drug takers, dancefloors and the night time economy from the perspective of the people participating.

The research lead asked Lee Salter to attempt to turn this project into a first-person documentary, allowing the individuals involved to tell their stories the way they want to tell them.

Drawing on his experience of Third Cinema, Salter undertook the People and Dancefloors documentary. It can be watched below.

You can read the ongoing research and the first academic publication here and listen to the regular People and Dancefloors podcasts produced by the team.
