Synopsis

On Landguard Point is a film about home created by Suffolk raised Robert Pacitti - founder of the award winning SPILL Festival of Performance and maker and curator of performance art for over 20 years - with original music by Michael Nyman.

Set entirely in the East of England and built through poetry, performance and slips of story. Woven together these forms accumulate ideas around what home means. The film is about trade: what it means to produce and export, or import from elsewhere. It is also then a film about migration, identity and defence. These themes underpin every element of the film and offer up multiple layers of resonance and meaning.

On Landguard Point features work by internationally acclaimed artists such as Julia Bardsley, Rajni Shah, Kira O’Reilly, Harminder Judge and Mark Peter Wright. http://www.onlandguardpoint.com/?page_id=14
