A Somewhere Film by Nina Pope with music by Tim & Matthew Olden
Originally commissioned in 2011 by UP Projects for The Floating Cinema

Barging Through London was made in 1924 by Harry B. Parkinson
With thanks to Huntley Film Archives

In 1924 Harry Parkinson made his original film as part of a series called ‘Wonderful London’. Taking this rare archive as inspiration, Somewhere (artists Nina Pope & Karen Guthrie) lovingly re-created this shot-for-shot remake in 2011, travelling the same route as Parkinson on the boat that was to become the first Floating Cinema. The film was conceived to introduce the Floating Cinema onto East London’s changing waterways, just prior to the Olympics. At the busy launch the boat was docked at Springfield Park and the film played to a live soundtrack performed by Tim & Matthew Olden. Although the canal infrastructure has remained largely unchanged, the surroundings are often hard to recognise, the simple juxtaposition of the two films forms a unique new record of ‘Wonderful London’ at a time of great change.
