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?
Screenings will be at the following times:
2.15pm–3.45pm: Home Sweet Home
2.30pm–3.30pm: Vision Quest: A Ritual for Elephant & Castle
4pm–5.30pm: Home Sweet Home
4.15pm–5.15pm: Vision Quest: A Ritual for Elephant & Castle
