Gallivant was the first feature film by ramshackle wanderer, Andrew Kötting.
See this remarkable film at FON on Sunday 25 February and meet Andrew who can field questions about this unlikely road-trip.
When it premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival almost 30 years ago Gallivant arguably changed the landscape of British documentary cinema.
For Kötting, it began a string of feature work that followed eccentric journeys into landscapes, history and people.
As part of Full of Noises’ Light in the Park film series, see Gallivant and meet Andrew.
It recorded a journey the director took clockwise around the coast of Britain accompanied by his 85-year-old grandmother, Gladys, and his seven-year-old daughter Eden.
Eden was born at Guy’s Hospital, London, in 1988 with a rare genetic disorder, Joubert syndrome, causing cerebral vermis hypoplasia and several other neurological complications.
The growing closeness between these two and the sense of impending mortality give the film its emotional underpinning.
