Polly II DVD OUT NOW
II - A Plan for a Revolution in Docklands, (30 mins).
A film by Anja Kirschner
Set in the not-so-distant future POLLY II – part satirical sci-fi,
part soap opera and Brechtian ‘Lehrstueck’ – portrays
the lives of pirates and outcasts surviving in the flooded ruins of East
London, a lawless zone set to become the latest in luxury waterside living
according to government plans and venturing developers’ wet dreams.
The film imagines a future insurrection coloured by the legacy of dispossessed
peasants, political radicals, whores, sailors, pirates, and former slaves
whom once inhabited East London and fought a daily battle against their
subjection to poverty, displacement and judicial terror.
Featuring music by Philosophie Queen. For more information click here
