About this video

Students from Bede Academy in Gateshead made this film about a local sculpture, Angel of the North by Antony Gormley, on the 20th anniversary of the sculpture's installation on a former mining site. The students mark the sculpture's birthday with cake, balloons and a recap of the sculpture's controversial beginnings. They also gather opinions from tourists and local people, and share their own views about the sculpture.

This is one of a series of short films about local sculpture produced by schools and groups of young people from across the UK.
