Walking Towards Ithaca
“When I was a teenager I took a job as a cleaner in a care home. As I scrubbed and vacuumed, one of the residents would follow me around the building. Asking me for help. Telling me that he was lost. Every day for two weeks he told me that he just wanted someone to show him how to get home.
Last night, for the first time in 20 years, I saw his face in a dream.
This morning I’m walking through a forest somewhere south of York. Maybe I’m still dreaming. I don’t know where I’m going. I don’t know what I’m looking for.”
Walking Towards Ithaca tells the story of a 200-mile walk across Britain at a time of deep political conflict.
Blurring the boundaries between documentary, autobiography and myth, it's a show that reflects on the complexities of human connection and belonging in world of anger and alienation.
