“Another Engand 1 : Old Town”
“Another England” is a cycle of films exploring a town on the edges of English society. It is a meditiation on this marginal, sometimes otherworldly place, and the characters that haunt it.
What does it mean to belong to somewhere? The four films explore different aspects of the complexity of belonging: “Old Town,” the first film in the cycle, looks at it through the eyes of a prodigal son returning.
Pig the dog is a glimpse into the life of a strange young lad called Del, who haunts the desolate hinterlands of his home town with his pet dog Pig, spending days drifting and hunting a rare delicacy that thrives in this most unlikely of locations.

Un día nos reunimos un grupo de amigos y desempolvamos una vieja imprenta. Abrimos fascinados cajones llenos de letras, comparamos y elegimos tipografías y un instante después ya estábamos buscando el papel y la tinta adecuada para hacer algo.
Te pones manos a la obra, juegas con las letras, buscas palabras, poco a poco te entra el nerviosismo, estás inmerso en un proceso creativo y solo piensas en ver el final.

In a remote corner of New Zealand’s South Island, tucked away among the last remaining tracts of native forest, lies a little-known place of wonder. It is the life’s work and extraordinary creation of inventor, artist and self-confessed tinkerer, Blair Somerville.
For over ten years Blair has single-handedly owned, operated and ceaselessly expanded the Lost Gypsy Gallery, his wonderland of homegrown wizardry and a playground for kids and adults alike. Using only recycled materials, Blair takes DIY to artistic extremes. His creations are ingenious, interactive, and often hilariously impractical. They take many shapes and forms and share an uncanny ability to amaze, entertain and inspire.
‘Lost & Found’ invites you to take a peek into Blair’s bizarre and beautiful world.
A film experiment by Joey Bania, made with funding from the BBC Worldwide Young Producers’ grant.
