Director Paul Wright and composer Adrian Utley will attend the screening on Sun 25 Feb.

A provocative and poetic exploration of Britain’s relationship with its own land, Arcadia is crafted from BFI National Archive footage spanning 100 years. BAFTA-winner Paul Wright (For Those in Peril) weaves an intoxicating array of material together, following an unnamed protagonist from the future as she travels through metaphorical ‘seasons’; from spring’s romantic agricultural idyll to winter’s political turmoil, as nature reacts with violent storms. Set to a grand and expressive score from Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) and drawing on inspiration from The Wicker Man to Winstanley, Arcadia is a dense and elegiac essay of wonder, hope, horror and decay.
