London Symphony + Q&A

Sat 30th September 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £5.00 – £12.50

“With this wonderful black-and-white journey through the city of London, director Alex Barrett brings a gloriously beautiful and enjoyable modern-day variation on the city symphonies of the 1920s urban cinema (such as 1929’s Man With A Movie Camera). His stunning visuals, combined with James McWilliam’s stirring music, help take the viewer on a poetic journey through London, exploring its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion. It is a meditative and blissful film that celebrates a vibrant and visually stunning city” – Edinburgh International Film Festival

The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director/editor Alex Barrett.

“As a salute to London, Barrett’s work is to be celebrated in itself. But as it comes after a recent spell of significant distress and upheaval to the city and its inhabitants – both locals and tourists – it’s existence is all the more significant” – Jamie Neish, CineVue

“majestic and captivating… The profundity conveyed through the imagery is sublime… a wonderful aesthetic experience” – Neil Fox, The Cinematologists

“This virtuoso display of editing weaves together a staggering volume of footage of contemporary London, addressing a wide spread of themes and geography with knife-sharp monochrome cinematography” – Rachel Brook, One Room With A View

“unlike anything else…a real delight, and one that will linger in the memory” – Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
