July 19th PassengerFilms Event

To celebrate the launch of the new Place, Environment, Writing MA run collaboratively by geographers and writers at Royal Holloway, PassengerFilms are back at the Roxy Bar and Screen putting on a special screening of Grant Gee’s Patience (After Sebald) (2012), alongside launch drinks, a short film by theEYE on Ian Hamilton Finlay’s Little Sparta, and talks from Sir Andrew Motion, James Kneale, Heather Yeung and curator Gareth Evans.

Patience (After Sebald) (2012) is a stunning multi-layered film essay on landscape, art, history, life and loss by the acclaimed documentary film-maker Grant Gee (‘Joy Division’, 2007). It’s an exploration of the work and influence of German writer WG Sebald, told via a long walk through coastal East Anglia tracking his most famous book, The Rings of Saturn. Visually and aurally innovative, ‘Patience’ features contributions from Tacita Dean, Robert Macfarlane, Katie Mitchell, Rick Moody, Andrew Motion, Chris Petit, Iain Sinclair and Marina Warner. The film was commissioned as part of The Re-enchantment, a three year national arts project by Artevents exploring our various relationships to place in the twenty first century. The film’s co-producer, Gareth Evans, now curator at Whitechapel Gallery, will present the film. Gareth is a writer, editor and film programmer who curated the Artevents project and also co-edited the limited edition book which came out of the project, Towards Re-Enchantment: Place and Its Meanings, copies of which will be available to buy on the night.
