London Symphony

Dir. Alex Barrett. UK, 2017. 1h 12m.

A new silent film that is a poetic journey through the capital, celebrating its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion. An ode to both London and the silent era symphony films of the 1920s, with its distinct visuals and grand, cinematic score, it’s a film that reflects on the London of the present through a lens of the past.

’The 'city symphony' genre that flourished in the '20s is made over in a monochrome montage…offering a view of London life spanning the city's architecture, wildlife, religions and nightspots’ ★★★★ Neil Smith, Total Film

’A rapturous, compelling and inventive snapshot of the British capital.’ ★★★★ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
