‘It’s About Love’ sees Luke meet Leia, except its not in a galaxy far, far away. They’re in Birmingham, on a film studies course, and Luke is about to learn that real life is a lot messier than the movies.
“Just like in Star Wars. Just like they’re made for each other. Same film studies course, different backgrounds, different ends of town.
Only this isn’t a film. This is real life. This is where monsters from the past come back to take revenge. This is where you are sometimes the monster. And where the things we build to protect us, can end up doing the most harm…”
Being from Birmingham himself, Steven Camden obviously has lots of ties to the city and all places that don’t make it into the tourist brochure. In a new set of videos, the spoken word poet, who also goes by Polarbear, gives readers a tour of his Birmingham, the one he grew up and made memories in, starting with Warley Wood.
If you want to get to know the rest of Steven’s Birmingham, and understand Luke’s connection to it, then check out the rest of the videos here. The skate park, grave yard, bus stop and Rackhams are still to be visited.
