London (1994)
Director: Patrick Keiller
82 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

London is a journal of 1992, the year of John Major’s re-election, IRA bombs and the first crack in the House of Windsor. Scathing reflections on the recent past are enlivened by offbeat humor and wide-ranging literary anecdotes. Patrick Keiller’s imaginative and highly original films each document a journey undertaken by the unseen “researcher” Robinson and his similarly unseen companion, the film’s narrator (voice by Paul Scofield).

Filmed with Keiller’s characteristic camera and sound technique, this film is a depiction of the city while under conservative rule.

Program is free. Reservations are not accepted.
