‘A tiny little map of what is happening now’ is how legendary east London author Iain Sinclair describes the London Overground line, the subject of John Roger’s (Make Your Own Damn Art, EEFF 2012) film following Sinclair and frequent collaborator Andrew Kötting as they traverse the train line on foot. Undertaken for the purposes of Sinclair’s book of the same name, this journey takes place over a year as opposed to the day’s walk written about by Sinclair. But that simply creates space for Sinclair’s fascination with the ‘Ginger Line’ as the ‘spin-drier of capitalism, whirling banknotes around the city…a real moment to look at this city of unreal money’. An engrossing, frequently humorous exploration of a unique mind, and its insights into a changing city.

Followed by a Q&A with the Director
