London | Patrick Keiller

Regular price £24.95

This is the first time Patrick Keiller's 1994 documentary, London, has been fully reproduced in print.

The film presents us with a fascinating psychogeographic voyage around London, seen through the eyes of the film's narrator and his accomplice, the mysterious Robinson. Driven by an urge to investigate 'the problem of London', the film chronicles a year in the history of the city. 1992, the year in question, was a low point - John Major is re-elected and leads a Conservative Party to their fourth successive victory. A government with little interest in the social or cultural health of the capital, only in the City of London as a financial centre.

This book reproduces the narration in full for the first time, set beneath 209 hi-res stills from the film. It's a wonderful read - especially when read with some ghostly ambient music playing in the background.
