Heated Gloves

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Captain Maurice Seddon, an inventor and eccentric in the great English tradition, made electrically heated clothing for ‘paraplegics, sclerotics, arthritics, rheumatics, the poor and landscape painters’. The details of his extremely modest, uncompromising way of life are here unpicked through a rich weave of incredible archival TV appearances from around the world (he featured on amongst others, the David Letterman show) plus very touching 16mm and mobile phone footage shot by friend and director William English. 'Heated Gloves' evokes Ben Rivers' 'Two Years at Sea' and the Maysles brothers' 'Grey Gardens', whilst highlighting the codes of television reportage and remaining in and of itself very special and unique – just like its subject.
