‘Robinson in Space’ Patrick Keiller.
“The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisable”
Robinson in Space. (d. Patrick Keiller, 1996) begins with Robinson’s unseen narrator quoting the 1960s French radical Situationist Raoul Vaneigem demanding that “a bridge between imagination and reality must be built.” It ends with Robinson’s disappearance and the narrator declaring that “I cannot tell you where Robinson finally found his Utopia.” In between is the search for that Utopia in the industrial landscape of England, and an attempt to bridge the gap between two worlds.
Keiller’s other films of note are ‘London’ and ‘Robinson in Ruins’ all worth watching.
