DVD watch/Saint Ettienne's Finisterre

Those of you who missed the presentation of Saint Etienne’s Finisterre movie last night at the London ICA, worry not. The film is available from Amazon. Finisterre is a 60-minute journey through London set over a period of 24 hours. Very arty and experimental, which is what you would expect from Saint Ettienne’s Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans. London has for long been the subject of artistic scrutiny. Peter Ackroyd, in his London, A Biography, researched the history of the city as if he were investing the life of a person. Sain Ettienne say they use Finisterre to ‘identify the dreams that London holds for many, and the reality of the city.’
