This is another extract from my feature documentary about Vashti Bunyan. It was shot over a period 4 years and took us across the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way I was fortunate to meet and interview the likes of Andrew Loog Oldham, Joe Boyd and the late Robert Kirby who gave fascinating insights into Vashti and the music industry of 60's . It was recently selected by the Daily Telegraphs Sukhdev Sandhu as his favourite film of last year in Sight and Sound's 2009 end of year review. Here's what he had to say about it.
"His last feature Finisterre offered a (Vic) Godardian take on Patrick Keiller’s London. His new film, a road movie in which folk chanteuse Vashti Bunyan retraces her late-1960s pilgrimage to the Outer Hebrides, is a fascinating addition to a British ruralist cine-archive that, alongside recent reissues of Winstanley and The Moon and the Sledgehammer, offers much to those interested in perambulatory topographics."
