Abdul Hamid Khan,
Against the background of the bomb sites, warehouses, riversides and street markets of late 1950's East End London, Together offers a compelling exploration of the isolated lives of two deaf-mute dockworkers. Despite its emotive fictional structure, the film is not a typical romanticizing of working-class life, but offers a complex, open-ended presentation that refuses to condemn or celebrate. The film is also notable for its extraordinary cast, with great performances from local people and the curious, but very successful casting of the artist Michael Andrews and the internationally known sculptor Eduardo Paolozzi.
