London Overground World Premiere

By John Rogers.

London Overground retraces Iain Sinclair’s journey with film-maker Andrew Kötting around the Overground railway for the book of the same name. The film covers the ground over the course of a year rather than the day’s walk of the book. Iain is once again joined by Kötting in parts, along with Chris Petit and Bill Parry-Davies on the 35-mile circular yomp.

What emerges from the film is a snapshot of the city in transition and also a unique insight into the most important chronicler of contemporary London. ‘The city’ Sinclair says at one point, ‘is a series of psychic mappings that reinforce our own identity’.

The screening will take place at the Rio Cinema, Dalston in the East End Film Festival, Saturday 2nd July 3.45pm followed by a Q&A with Iain and I.

Tickets are available from the Rio Cinema website.
