London - The Modern Babylon is legendary director Julien Temple's epic time-travelling voyage to the heart of his hometown.

From musicians, writers and artists to *dangerous* thinkers, political radicals and above all, ordinary people, the film tells the story of London's immigrants, its bohemians and how together they changed the city forever.

Reaching back to London at the start of the 20th century, the story unfolds through film archive and the voices of Londoners past and present, powered by the popular music across the century.

London - The Modern Babylon will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
