ON-BOARD SCREENINGS: ARCHIVAL SHORTS ABOUT LONDON’S WATERWAYS: DOCKS, CANAL & RIVERS – 

THURSDAY 11 SEPTEMBER



Navigating the flow of the Thames from its source in the Thames Valley, our curated selection of films presents a history of London’s relationship with the river, its people and industries. Working in partnership with Museum of London Docklands, the Floating Cinema will screen a rolling programme of archive films from the 1920s onwards with a special screening of silent films accompanied by a presentation by Georgina Young, Senior Curator of Contemporary History at Museum of London.

ANDREW KÖTTING (with IAIN SINCLAIR)’s ‘SWANDOWN’ (2012 – 90 Minutes) – FRIDAY 12 SEPTEMBER

‘Swandown’ records the voyage of two men – film-maker/artist Andrew Kötting, and writer/novelist / psychogeographer Iain Sinclair – as they set out by water, from England’s South Coast to the edges of London. Starting from a seaside funfair in Hastings, the two men make their intrepid way by sea, river and canal to Hackney in East London – powered by vision, determination and sheer legwork, on the back of ‘Edith’, a swan-shaped pedalo. En route, they meet river and canal dwellers, listen to the ambient echoes of British culture (historical, literary, political) and tune in – like “flesh radios”, as Sinclair says, channeling the cultural unconscious – to the secret voices of England today and yesterday.

ON-BOARD SCREENINGS AND TALKS – SATURDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 

The London Premiere of ‘Afloat’, a new film by artist Neville Gabie commissioned by IOTA. Talks on the use and inspiration of water in artists work speakers including Neville Gabie, Tania Kovats, and Lise Autogena. We are also hosting and streaming our afternoon of artist talks online at www.floatingcinema.info/live
