Film details


"A Psycho Geographic trip through London to the end of the world". Running like a river through Saint Etienne's history, London has been a source of influence, inspiration adn curiosity. This film tries to identify the dreams that London holds for so many, and the reality of the city - the spaces between the landmarks, the spaces Londoner's inhabit.

The film takes us on a journey from the suburbs into the heart of the city over an imaginary 24 hours. Along the way we hear from characters who have influenced or been a part of the Saint Etienne stroy. Through the interviews and imagery we see London from an insider's perspective. The result is a hymn to London and an extraordinary record of the city today.
