Issue 52 July 2012

Welcome to this online-only issue of Now Then.

Don’t panic – we aren’t going under. After careful consideration, we came to the decision that it was better to save ourselves for September, so this month and next month we will be bringing you exclusive online magazines with art submissions from local talents. This month: coLor.

I would strongly recommend you read James Legge’s piece on inequality in Sheffield. It’s a real eye-opener, even if you’ve been living in the city for years. My interview with French experimental filmmaker Vincent Moon can be read in this issue, as well as pieces on recycling, the Kinder Trespass and Blue Labour, with light relief provided by NewsThump.

João Paulo Simões dissects Doc/Fest 2012 in this month’s Filmreel, while we have 8 reviews for you in our Albums section.

Enjoy the read.
