Film Screening ON LANDGUARD POINT
The second in a series of three screening evenings celebrating the local, regional and international legacy of London 2012.
FREE admission, refreshments available.
Inspired by the histories and culture of the East of England, ‘On Landguard Point’ exists at an intersection between live performance, community and cinema. The film stars hundreds of people from across the East of England, and features work by internationally acclaimed artists including Michael Nyman, Kira O’Reilly, Julia Bardsley, Rajni Shah, Dominic Johnson, Harminder Judge, Dicky Eton, Sheila Ghelani, Carla Esperanza Tommasini, Helena Hunter and Giovanna Maria Casetta. ‘On Landguard Point’ is a non-narrative film built through poetry, patchwork, maps and slips of story. Woven together these forms accumulate ideas around what home means. Created as part of Artists taking the lead: funded by Arts Council England.
‘A TRIUMPH’ – EAST ANGLIAN DAILY.
