Trail of the Spider
Anja Kirschner and David Panos, 2008
54 mins, Format: SD / PAL / 16:9 Anamorphic
Recreating sweeping panoramas of the Wild West on landfills, wastelands and gravel pits linked to the construction of the 2012 Olympic Park, the film transposes genre motifs and the suppressed history of the American West onto the ‘vanishing frontier’ of East London.
