‘Both a fascinating study of a culture in decline, and a scathing commentary on the effects of more than a decade of Conservatism, the film touches on figures as diverse as Baudelaire, John Major and the Chippendales. One of the most original British features in a long time.’ - Time Out
Marking 300 years this week since first publication of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, we're delighted to welcome artist, film-maker and political geographer Patrick Keiller to present his prescient and hugely acclaimed 1994 essay film, in which his own flaneuring cultural protagonist Robinson considers the state of the nation via a tour of key capital city sites and events.
Also appearing will be Jack Robinson, whose suitably titled Robinson explores Crusoe in the culture. The evening will be hosted by Gareth Evans.
