The Café Chronicles Ep 8

(8/10) - The Head Man of SW8

Daniel Ruiz Tizon returns with a brand new series, presenting daily missives from the South Lambeth Portuguese café he has holed himself up in since the summer of 2001. As the gentrification sweeping through Nine Elms and Vauxhall accelerates, The Café Chronicles documents the characters and community threatened by these changes.

It’s a world of tobacco, discarded chicken bones, faded denim, easily slighted personalities, exaggerated Mediterranean gesticulations and coffee, the glue that holds the old community together.

The unusually hot October evening back in 2011 when the Drunken Somalian abused the café regulars is recalled.

Written and presented by Daniel Ruiz Tizon.
