This film, by directing duo James & James - comprising of film makers James Coyle and Jamie McCormack, is their homage to the borough of Camden. Jamie McCormack grew up in Queen’s Park, went to school in Cricklewood and spent many a teenage near-nefarious night out on the streets of Camden - primarily Camden Town, Belsize Park and Kentish town. In all that time he never realised just how big and varied the borough of Camden is- and when we found out we wanted to make a film that explored it properly - a paean to the borough that was home to so many memories.
This collaborative film ‘An exploration of yoga asanas in iconic architectural and public spaces across Camden' brings together a number of Yoga Asana’s that encourage moments of stillness and reflection within an urban context. From dawn at Parliament Hill to the brutalist architecture of the Alexandra & Ainsworth estate, to pocket parks and Kings Cross. The sounds of the city punctuate the flow as a reminder of life in the city as we take time to focus ourselves and calm the mind within the ever changing landscape.
For Camden Kalā, Love Camden has invited curators, artists and thinkers to respond to the iconic academic text Pidginy Linguish by Sarat Maharaj in their own way. This month: Kriti Bajaj, critic, writer and theorist.
