- [New – 7/26] | Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film
- Excerpt: The London Olympics 2012 have variously been billed as a modern event, a British event, a cultural event. In the rush to co-opt approved ideas, something of the character of London and its surroundings has been cut out, swept aside. Swandown sees director Andrew Kötting and poet Iain Sinclair set out to recapture something of that immemorial English spirit, steeped in real artistic heritage. What better way to do it than to travel from Hastings to the city itself in a joyfully liberated swan shaped pedalo.
