Overview

Artist Larry Achiampong’s most ambitious film to date, Wayfinder is an epic film about class and economic exclusion, belonging and displacement, cultural heritage and the meaning of home. Set during a pandemic, it follows The Wanderer (a young girl played by Perside Rodrigues), who travels the length of England, finding herself in a series of poignant encounters with different regions, people, stories, songs and situations along the way. Setting out from the timeworn paths of Hadrian’s Wall and eventually reaching the sea at Margate, this film draws on a diverse range of references from sci-fi and folk song to video games and painting, and offers a profound reckoning with the landscape and culture of contemporary England.
