The East End Film Festival showcases hot new talent and homegrown films alongside larger independent releases and special events, informing and inspiring a new generation of filmmakers and audiences from across London and beyond, and raising the profile of this vibrant and diverse area - London’s East End.
One of the films to be premiered during the film festival is 'The Rime Of The Modern Mariner'. A new documentary film about the London Docks in the uniquely atmospheric church setting of the Hawksmoor Church of St Anne’s at Limehouse.
‘The Rime of the Modern Mariner’. directed by journalist Mark Donne and narrated by musician Carl Barat, focuses on what happened to the culture, community and folklore of the London Docks - for hundreds of years the watery capital of a maritime nation and the largest port on earth until its closure in the late 1960’s left an entire way of life sucked into a vacuum.
The Rime of the Modern Mariner will be premiered on Friday 23rd April to book tickets click here.
