To celebrate the closing weekend of their current exhibition ‘The Land We Live in – The Land We Left Behind’ Hauser & Wirth Somerset have organised a special screening of ‘Arcadia’ (2017), a provocative and poetic new film about our contradictory relationship to the land. The film is set to a grand and expressive score composed by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), who will both take part in a Q&A with Adrian Cooper from Common Ground following the screening.

Arcadia is a dense and elegiac essay of wonder, hope, horror and decay that examines the rich, strange history of the British countryside and our relationship with the changing landscape. Crafted from BFI national archive footage that spans 100 years, BAFTA®-winner Paul Wright (For Those in Peril) weaves an intoxicating array of material together that follows 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.

Arcadia is produced by Hopscotch Films, Crossover and Common Ground, with the support of the British Film Institute, Creative Scotland and the BBC.
