On Friday 12th July 2013 our friends at Caught By The River and the BFI are celebrating the launch of A London Trilogy: The Films of Saint Etienne 2003-2007 with special guests, filmmaker Paul Kelly and Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley, Sarah Cracknell and Pete Wiggs.
From a beautifully conceived film-poem and an imaginative exploration of the Lower Lea Valley to an uplifting documentary on a London landmark, the collaborations between electronic indie trio Saint Etienne and filmmaker Paul Kelly (Lawrence of Belgravia) document London’s ever-changing environment and landscapes with music by the band.
Released together by the BFI on one DVD for the first time (on 15 July 2013) the trilogy of Finisterre, What Have you Done Today Mervyn Day? and This is Tomorrow is accompanied by rare and previously unavailable short films.
The event takes place at Rough Trade East with the screening of a selection of the shorts followed by a Q&A with Paul Kelly and Bob Stanley.
