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.
