Patrick Keiller: London

Introduction by Patrick Keiller.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Patrick Keiller: London.'

A highly imaginative psychogeographic journey through (and history of) London from Patrick Keiller, author of Robinson in Space and View from the Train

In London, the celebrated filmmaker and writer Patrick Keiller offers a journey through the London of 1992, as undertaken by an unnamed narrator and his companion, Robinson. The unseen pair complete a series of excursions around the city, in an attempt to investigate what Robinson calls “the problem of London”; in so doing, the vast palimpsest of the city is revealed.

Based on Keiller’s acclaimed 1994 film of the same name, London is a unique take on the essay-film format in the style of Chris Marker, with scathing reflections on the recent past, enlivened by offbeat humor and wide-ranging literary anecdotes. The amazing locations reveal the familiar London of the near past: Concorde almost touches suburban houses as it takes off; Union Jacks fly from Wembley Stadium; and pigeons flock around tourists in Trafalgar Square. These images, in combination with the script, allow us to see beyond the London presented on the page.

This volume offers both a fascinating reflection on the diverse histories of Britain’s capital and an illuminating record of 1992, the year of John Major's reelection, IRA bombs and the first crack in the House of Windsor. The publication constitutes the first time that the film has been fully reproduced in print and contains an introduction from the director.
