Gallivant | 1997
Kotting, his grandmother and his daughter Eden set out together to travel the whole way around the coastline of mainland Britain, starting and finishing on the South Coast. Eden has learning difficulties and speaks in sign language, so some of the film is subtitled. Granny gets sore feet. Together they have adventures, meet lots of characters, eplore fishing villages, get to know each other. Knotting films the journey like Koyaanisqatsi. Clouds race across the sky, tides rise and fall, landscapes are bathed first in sun, then in shade. Much of the dialogue, the little conversations people have when they know each other well and just enjoy being together, floats about this epic imagery of the sea and sky, bringing a majesty and a poetry to both.
