FOUR CORNERS. In 1973, behind a shopfront at 113 Roman Road, London E1, four young filmmakers – Joanna Davis, Mary Pat Leece, Ronald Peck and Wilf Thust – set up a cinema and production studio with the aim of introducing “films and filmmaking to those who had previously been excluded from the whole practice”. In the context of a polarised and politically charged Bethnal Green of the 1970s, many local children and young adults found at Four Corners – and in Wilf Thust’s workshops in particular – a sanctuary where they could explore forms of self-representation and develop vocabularies of commonality, resistance and dissent. (MayDay Rooms, 2014).

In October 2017, Wilf Thust deposited 18 scrapbooks to the Memory Room and Experimental Teaching Unit at Central Saint Martins College. Below is a complete collection of digital documents from the scrapbooks and an explanatory letter from Wilf outlining his approach to working with children and young adults “Four Corners, My Points of View”. These eBooks are free to download and distribute and if used for anything other than educational purposes, should be credited to ‘The collection of Wilf Thust, 2018’
