Event description

Description

Taking as its entry point the booklet “Life in the UK” - required reading for all those seeking UK citizenship - Maria Anastassiou presents the project and the film made in response to the historic port of entry for immigrants arriving in Britain; Tilbury in Essex.

Set against the transient landscape of the Thames Estuary, laden with traces of the ever shifting global narratives of commerce and migrations, Anastassiou spent the last year connecting with local groups, including Romanian workers, Nigerian asylum seekers and Filipino seafarers. Working with analogue film, Anastassiou's process-led approach questions official narratives and meditates on the everyday of living and working in Tilbury.

Join the 45 minute boat trip from Greenwich Pier to Tilbury Town accompanied by Tilbury-based tour guide Mike Ostler who will delight you with his knowledge of the Essex and Kent coasts as you cruise along the Thames. Upon arrival at Tilbury, you will disembark at Tilbury Cruise Terminal, where the screening of the film will take place inside the historic building. Please be aware that there will be a short 2 minute walk from the boat landing to the terminal building, surfaces are uneven so please wear appropriate flat footwear. Refreshments and a light buffet of Romanian food will be provided in the terminal building. The presentation and film will take approximately 2 hours and the boat will depart Tilbury for the return journey to Greenwich at 7pm.

Please make the organisers aware if you wish to take another route on your return journey.
