"A contemplative study in movement and sound, the film takes the viewer on a journey into the London night, and explores the eerie isolation and fragile peace of a nocturnal urban landscape."
The film is a part of the programme: London - Hidden.
CREATE commissioned three short films about east London, which capture a unique moment in time as the area undergoes the most significant changes in its history.
The films, by Paul Kelly & Saint Etienne, Michael Smith & Wojciech Duczmal, and Eva Weber, trace the artists’ personal journeys through the Olympic boroughs.
