Edith Walks is inspired by a walk from Waltham Abbey in Essex to St Leonards-on-Sea in East Sussex. Filmed on 'Digital Super 8' iPhones, it documents a pilgrimage in memory of Edith Swan Neck, hand fast wife of King Harold. His remains were brought to Waltham for burial in 1066 and Edith is seen cradling him in a sculpture in St Leonards. Featuring a variety of encounters and impromptu performances en route, the film re-connects the lovers after 950 years.

Meantime Edith's eyes fix on the man-shadows overhead, resplendent in their didactic belief systems and stupid hats, which seem to have blighted women since the beginning of time. King Harold would not have approved because despite the fact that time itself can touch you like a feather, stupid men keep firing their bloody arrows…
