The London Story
Sally Potter's lively dance film about spies and government intrigue.
Musical 1986 16 mins
This tale about three eccentric characters and their conspiratorial plans to reveal government secrets is played out like a silent comedy - or a Technicolor musical. Against a backdrop of familiar London locations, body gestures and movements are precisely but playfully performed to the dramatic music of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.
