Open City Docs, together with UCL Urban Labs and Film + Place + Architecture, present the launch of a three part screening series that will compliment the EDGE symposium conducted by the Bartlett School of Architecture.

Finisterre

Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans / 2003 / United Kingdom / 57”

+ selected shorts

A hymn to London that takes us on a journey from the suburbs to the heart of the city, with a mesmerizing score by Saint Etienne (Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs and Sarah Cracknell). London has long been a source of influence, stimulation and curiosity for the band, and the film is a poignant ‘psycho-geographical’ drama that celebrates the capital in both its seediness and glory. Exploring the dreams the city holds for so many alongside the reality of urban life, the result is an extraordinary record of London today.

A post-screening panel will be chaired by James O’Leary (The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL), and feature Amica Dall (Assemble) and Matthew Beaumont (UCL English/Urban Lab).

Join us at the launch of this exciting new film series as part of Open City Documentary Festival.
