Traum

The site of the 2012 Olympics is Lee Valley, London, and below is a fascinating travelogue of sorts to get you familiar with the place! Be forewarned the monochromatic austerity of the landscape, the post-apocalyptic dilapidation all add to the charming void which the area offers.

The filmmaker, Martin Hampton, cuts and lingers with a Olivier Smoulders via Stan Brakhage rhythm, and the superb soundtrack harkens back to the cold German experimental art-punk of Einstürzende Neubauten.
