Swandown

Synopsis

Swandown is a travelogue and odyssey of Olympian ambition. A poetic film-diary about encounter and culture. It is also an endurance test and pedal-marathon. Andrew Kötting (the filmmaker) and Iain Sinclair (the writer) pedal a plastic swan-shaped pedalo from the seaside in Hastings to Hackney in East London, via the English inland waterways. This action may, in part be seen as an act of ‘dada performance’ or as a response to the spirit of Olympic diversity and ambition. The journey and all that it entails is documented on both film and video and presented as a 90-minute feature length experimental documentary. http://swandown.info/
