Mile End Purgatorio

Mile End Purgatorio | UK 1991 | Video | 1 min 25s

This work represents a collaboration between filmmaker and poet responding to tensions between film and the spoken word. The scene is a parade of shops in Grove Rd., Mile End, London: the voice a male mid-life crisis. Shop fronts and other images provoke and externalise the many themes of conflict. Biblical and literary allusions reinforce the humour and sense of anxiety. M.D
