Robert Pacitti – director
Michael Nyman – original music
On Landguard Point is a film by Pacitti Company featuring performance, prose, myth, music and spectacular visuals. Inspired by the histories and culture of the East of England, On Landguard Point explores diverse ideas of home and exists at an intersection between live performance, community and cinema – where local people and places really do become the stars of the show.
Michael Nyman has written 5 new pieces as composer and performer of the original soundtrack for On Landguard Point which he performs with the Michael Nyman Band and Soprano Marie Angel. These songs are built around a cycle of texts written by Robert Pacitti and Sheila Ghelani, and explore themes of work, the sea, and the region’s rich folk heritage.
