The Botanist: A Field in England + Miracle on George Green

Sun 3 , Tue 5 & Thu 7 September

UK | 2013 | 87’ | 15 | Ben Wheatley Reece | Shearsmith, Michael Smiley, Julian Barratt, Ryan Pope 

In the 17th century, amid the English Civil War, a group of deserters flee from battle through an overgrown field. Captured by an alchemist, the men fall victim to the powerful energies in the earth. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, this exploration of the land beneath our feet and its murky history within, is shot by Laurie Rose in glorious black and white. 

“Breathtakingly lovely and genuinely unsettling… early 70s folk-horror is a key influence. But so are the experimental films of Maya Deren and Stan Brakhage” 

Tom Huddleston, Time Out


The Miracle on George Green 

UK | 2022 | 12’ | Onyeka Igwe

Fascinated as a child by the English Civil War, the Levellers and the Diggers, Onyeka Igwe created this beautiful short film. Borne of walking through Hackney Marshes in 2020, this is an exploration of political defeat, the romanticism of nature and nostalgia for the concept of Common Land.
