Our next night back at the Roxy Bar & Screen will be an event on psychogeography, with a feature screening of John Rogers’ The London Perambulator (the film has a blog here which includes trailers and TV features), followed by a Q&A with John Rogers and with Nick Papadimitriou. They will be talking about the making of the film and its sources, as well as about their Resonance FM radio show, Ventures and Adventures in Topography (see blog), which combines perambulations in London with a look at old texts, guidebooks and maps.
Nick will also read a section from his forthcoming book, Scarp, about the North Middlesex/ South Hertfordshire escarpment, to musical accompaniment. We will also have a few words from Gale, Serena and Clare from the urban exploration project WALKWALKWALK , about their archaeological methodologies in routing and rerouting North East London, and from Roland Francois-Lack at UCL, who writes a daily blog about the connection between maps and film, THE CINETOURIST.
7.30pm, Tuesday June 14th, Roxy Bar & Screen, London Bridge.
