Andrew Kötting, the high priest of British experimental film, embarks on another exploration of the English countryside. This time it's a walk from Waltham Abbey in Essex, via Battle Abbey, to St Leonards-on-Sea in memory of Edith Swan-Neck. Bits of King Harold’s body were brought to Waltham for burial near the High Altar after the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and his wife Edith Swan-Neck is seen cradling him in a remarkable sculpture at Grosvenor Gardens on the sea front in St Leonards. The film re-connects the lovers after 950 years of separation. With images shot using digital super 8 iphones and sound recorded using a specially constructed music box with a boom microphone the film unfolds chronologically but in a completely unpredictable way. ✮✮✮✮ "A cornucopia of ramshackle delights" - David Jenkins, Little White Lies ✮✮✮✮ “wonderfully eccentric” – Wendy Ide, The Observer "Likeable loopy" - Hannah MGill, Sight & Sound One of The Guardian's Summer 2017's Best Movies
