-__nine nine nine nine nine__ is a short film that takes its title from a line in The Clash, '​London’s Burning'​[1977]. It amalgamates sections of archival and recent 16mm footage shot inside 53 Beck Road, one of several on a road of terraced houses intended for demolition by the Greater London Council in the late 1970s. Many of these houses were subsequently managed by Acme, as a short-life housing and studio solution for artists. The film is based upon accounts of those artists living at 53 Beck Road, Kieran Lyons [resident 1978 - 1986] and Karen and Peter Bunting [residents 1986 - to date], who describe the initial absence of floorboards in the house, previously burnt, pointing to evidence of the interior plunder by previous tenants and squatters and an ‘asset stripping’ that continues into political practices. __nine nine nine nine nine__ looks to evoke the contemporary housing crisis pitted against the agency of community, where missing ​architectural features and the domestic void are drawn into a reflection on history and power, and the ‘new religions’ haunting society then and now.+__nine nine nine nine nine__ is a short film that takes its title from a line in The Clash, '​London’s Burning'​[1977].
