Vision Quest – screening + -

Saturday 6 June, 2015


Siobhan Davies Dance host an afternoon of film screenings that chart the changing landscape of Elephant & Castle.

Featuring ‘Vision Quest: A Ritual for Elephant & Castle’ (2012) by Marcus Coates – part documentary, part performance, part art, part archive – the film explores major transitions in the south London neighbourhood; and ‘Home Sweet Home’ (2012) by Enrica Colusso. Centred around the now derelict Heygate Estate, ‘Home Sweet Home’ tells a complex but intimate story of urban and social transformation, and asks: what kind of society are we building?
