Get Lost

Single channel video

Get Lost is a collaboration between writer Nicholas Noyes and artist Ruth Maclennan. The film follows a tortuous ride around London, speculating on past and present manifestations of this unpredictable, changing and sometimes frightening city.

Different voices of the city collide and break into the stream of consciousness of the unreliable narrator. The images explore visible manifestations of the city, capturing the forgotten or hidden narratives that lie behind fleeting glimpses of a race-track, alley, park, street, river, motorway, or in a crowd.
