Patrick Keiller: London and Robinson in Space

Patrick Keiller: London and Robinson in Space
Publication Date 2009
Description Two films by Patrick Keiller Patrick Keiller’s imaginative and highly original films each document a journey undertaken by the unseen ‘researcher’ Robinson and his similarly unseen companion, the film’s narrator (voice by Paul Scofield). London is a journal of 1992, the year of John Major’s re-election, IRA bombs and the first crack in the House of Windsor. Scathing reflections on the recent past are enlivened by offbeat humour and wide-ranging literary anecdotes. Robinson in Space sees Robinson commissioned to undertake a study of the ‘problem’ of England. Keiller’s immaculately framed images and sly deadpan narration take the viewer on an unpredictable exploration of the cultural and economic landscape.
