We are joined by special guests - members of the The Southend Band and musical director Suzie Shrubb to talk about their part in the making of On Landguard Point.

Inspired by the histories and culture of the East of England, On Landguard Point exists at an intersection between live performance, community and cinema. The film stars hundreds of people from across the East of England, and features work by internationally acclaimed artists including Michael Nyman, Kira O’Reilly, Julia Bardsley, Rajni Shah, Dominic Johnson, Harminder Judge, Dicky Eton, Sheila Ghelani, Carla Esperanza Tommasini, Helena Hunter and Giovanna Maria Casetta. On Landguard Point is a non-narrative film built through poetry, patchwork, maps and slips of story. Woven together these forms accumulate ideas around what home means.

Socially engaged and process led, Pacitti Company approaches performance making as investigation through research. The Company blends formal disciplines and techniques with social sciences and personal politic. Convened in 1990 by artist Robert Pacitti, the Company has spent the past two decades making and touring an award winning body of radical live performance works around the world. On Landguard Point is Robert Pacitti’s directorial debut. Created as part of Artists taking the lead: funded by Arts Council England.

As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past. Created with a common goal, to tell a story of redemption, hope, and second chances. It was not about the bike, however, the bicycle became a tool that has changed a nation. The film follows Team Rwanda on its journey to Hadleigh, Essex to compete in the London 2012 Mountain Biking event held at Hadleigh Farm in August 2012.
