Andrew Kötting's experimental new documentary follows in the footsteps of English Poet John Clare.

About

ANDREW KÖTTING / 2015 / UNITED KINGDOM /

By Our Selves documents a four-day walk made by the English Poet John Clare. Toby Jones, Iain Sinclair and a Straw Bear follow in his footsteps exactly 150 years after his death. En route they bump into Macgillivray, Dr Simon Kovesi and the wizard Alan Moore. Meantime the journey is narrated by Toby’s father Freddie, a maverick actor who featured in numerous David Lynch films. Captured in lustrous black and white photography, they discover the only truth of the road; whatever our hopes and delusions, we are always By Our Selves.

Screening followed by Q&A with director Andrew Kötting.
