Finisterre

Synopsis

A hymn to London that takes us on a journey from the suburbs to the heart of the city, with a mesmerizing score by Saint Etienne (Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs and Sarah Cracknell).

London has long been a source of influence, stimulation and curiosity for the band, and the film is a poignant 'psycho-geographical' drama that celebrates the capital in both its seediness and glory. Exploring the dreams the city holds for so many alongside the reality of urban life, the result is an extraordinary record of London today. Digitally shot and edited, Finisterre evolved alongside the album of the same name. Initially conceived as a way of channelling the money allocated to pop promos into something more substantial, it became in every sense an independent production. Its development is unique: early sequences were projected as live visuals behind the band on their last tour, while the film has played recently to cinema audiences in London, Madrid, Vancouver and Tokyo.
