Last night I went to the premier of On Landguard Point at the Ipswich Film Theatre. there even was a canopy and a red carpet.
as it says on the blurb...'On Landguard Point is a film by Pacitti
Company featuring performance, prose, myth, music and spectacular
visuals. Inspired by the histories and culture of the East of England,
On Landguard Point exists at an intersection between live performance,
community and cinema – where local people and places really do become
the stars of the show.'
It was a stunning, painterly film. The director Robert Pacitti captured a tapestry of moments and events from last year, of both commissioned performance art pieces woven together with events and displays by local communities based in and around Languard Point; a historical old fort situated right on the edge of the country where Felixstow juts into the cold grey sea. The words were beautiful and poignant and hung the piece together, the music too had a rhythmic pace.
