Where the runway meets the street

Dan Emmerson’s latest short film explores the disconnect the youth and the elders of today.

“Gannin Hyem” was produced by TCO and Somesuch, commissioned by Spaces In-Bewtween, size?’s print publication. Dan’s seven-minute short film shows the gap between today’s hypebeast youth and elders by focusing on whippet racing, a longstanding tradition in Newcastle.

The filmmaker gained access to a few racing clubs and got some footage of them in action in a rather vintage way. By putting the spotlight on a very local subculture, the viewers are given a look into a sport that was once in high demand but is now fading.
