A new work from filmmaker Adam Carr, EEFF Poet in Residence Jan Noble and musicians Samuel Kilcoyne & Takatsuna Mukai, My Name Is Swan describes, through film, music and poetry, a 24 hour journey across London.
An odyssey of loss and belonging, lies and loyalty, ownership and neglect, Brexit and heartbreak, drugs and the suburbs, boredom, football violence, vandalism, happiness, isolation, addiction, rivers, shopping trolleys, love, hope and the metropolitan malaise... addressing the growing social and economic disparity of the modern city, it is most of all a meandering, beautifully evocative portrait of London, the struggles it presents and the solutions it offers.
