Video Strolls present an evening of ambulatory entertainment built around Tom Pickard’s 1991 film Birmingham’s What I Think With. This one-hour documentary follows poet Roy Fisher around various hidden corners of Birmingham, dragging a front door from the Handsworth home where he grew up. In support you will find a selection of short films and talks exploring place, people and journeying. Guests include filmmaker Liberty Rowley and artist David Rowan.
