Movie Info

For four weeks throughout the months of September and October 2011 Andrew Kötting and Iain Sinclair pedalled a plastic swan over 160 miles from the seaside in Hastings to Hackney in East London.

It all comes together in a charming and idiosyncratic way to create a rich and often funny snapshot of local identity.

It is a bit of a vanity project: but the sight of these two guys and their great big swan is surreal and funny.

It converts Kötting at a stroke from an acquired taste to a required one.
