Since his feature debut Gallivant (CFF 1996), journeys have been the basis of Andrew Kötting’s idiosyncratic documentary work. Kötting and psychogeographer Iain Sinclair travel from London to the Outer Hebrides to bury a box made of whalebone. Within is possibly experimental cinema’s greatest MacGuffin, though an answer may be found after the end credits. Meanwhile his daughter Eden, in folk costume, narrates her own fairy tale with our two heroes as mere players. DOM
Accompanied by a screening of ‘In Far Away Land’ (6 mins), a film exploring Eden Kötting’s animated drawings.
