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's all quite wonderfully nutty in a thoroughly British way or a bit of a bore, depending on your disposition.

A constantly beguiling movie with an underlying touch of bitterness, especially towards the end.

The way Kötting and Sinclair wrestle their craft, nicknamed Edith, over muddy embankments and bicker as they splosh along loamy waterways makes Swandown feel like Fitzcarraldo on a You've Been Framed budget.

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

Not for everyone, but still well worth exploring.
