A young girl named as ‘The Wanderer” played by Perside Rodrigues, starts her journey across England at Hadrian’s Wall. Accompanied by a gas mask during a non-specific pandemic, she explores a range of environments including Wellingborough, Bethnal Green, the National Gallery and the coast of Margate.

Set across six chapters, including ‘The North’, she encounters histories, stories and people, including the first female Black British Olympian, Anita Neil.

This debut feature comes from British-Ghanaian artist Larry Achiampong, and is regarded as one of his most ambitious works to date.

He says: “I wanted to create a film with conversation that sat at a much more local level, thinking very much regionally, thinking about England, the United Kingdom and that relationship with travel, the relationship with journey and so on.”

Wayfinder is an extraordinary film influenced by Achiampong’s own notions of fear, isolation, economic exclusion, cultural heritage, empire and national identity.
