Karl Hyde teams up with British filmmaker Kieran Evans (Finisterre, Kelly + Victor) to create a poetic meditation on the Essex borderlands, the ‘Outer Edges’ of London. Following the River Roding down to the docks of the Thames, the film grew out of Hyde’s Edgland solo project, and the result is a poignant work of psycho-geography in the mould of Patrick Keiller. Mixing stunning footage of both natural and urban environments, and featuring interviews alongside Karl’s own voiceover meditations on his journey, The Outer Edges takes us from hauntingly still wetlands to working men’s clubs, and everywhere in between. A thrillingly alive contemplation of man and his environment.
