A Poetic Journey Through the Life of a City

LONDON SYMPHONY is a brand new silent film - a city symphony - which offers a poetic journey through the capital. It is an artistic snapshot of London as it stands today, and a celebration of its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion.

It is currently screening around the UK, and can be streamed worldwide (through the BFI Player in the UK, and through Flicker Alley internationally). It is also available on region free bluray through Flicker Alley, and region two DVD through New Wave Films.

The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017, and was the winner of four categories in the Silent London Poll of 2017: Best silent film DVD/Blu-ray release, Best silent film theatrical release, Best modern silent of 2017 and Silent hero of 2017 (for director/editor Alex Barrett).

LONDON SYMPHONY was directed and edited by Alex Barrett, and features music by James McWilliam. It was produced by Katharine Round, and was written by Rahim Moledina. It was photographed by Alex Barrett, Diana Olifirova, Keifer Taylor, Jackie Teboul and Simon Thorpe.
