ROBINSON IN RUINS

A film by Patrick Keiller

With Vanessa Redgrave as the Narrator

In cinemas from 19th November 2010

(UK 2010 | 101 mins | Cert U)

Robinson in Ruins is the eagerly awaited sequel to Patrick Keiller’s earlier two films London and Robinson in Space. Narrated by Vanessa Redgrave, this cinematic essay intriguingly blends fiction and documentary, taking us on a tour of the English landscape against the backdrop of our current economic predicament and looming environmental catastrophe…

References to the Captain Swing riots of 1830, Shelley, Marx, the opium poppy fields of Oxfordshire and the war in Afghanistan all serve to make this a timely, provocative film, studded with surreal humour.

Intellectually stimulating, mysterious and beautiful, Robinson in Ruins makes us consider the world around us afresh.
