Brannigan's March

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

On losing his job, Philip Brannigan finds himself unable to return home.  His entire material world is collapsing. In his confused state, he adopts a religious sandwich board found in the park. And so begins his journey across the UK.
 
What at first seems like the aimless wandering of a confused man, gradually turns into a specific march towards Brannigan's childhood home. Brannigan experiences a number of encounters which are fuelled by the message on his board. 'The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth'. These are experiences that range from the sublime to the brutal, the mundane to the relevatory; experiences and encounters that reveal a changing external social landscape, and an evolving inner spiritual world.
 
Arriving on the east coast, Brannigan is faced with the reality that there is no home to go back to, no past in which to take shelter, and in his deepest moment of despair he discovers, through his interaction with the sea, a new strength and a new way of understanding his life.
 
In this experiential story, we are invited to  immerse ourselves in the detail of Brannigan's experience and see the imagery of the everyday contemporary world in a mythological and mystical light.
