Abstract

In Swimmer Lynne Ramsay makes a compelling case for a British psychogeographic cinema that takes its audience off the nation’s streets and into its waterways. The proposition recalls – but moves beyond – the earlier sensorial explorations of Glasgow’s canals seen/heard/felt in her first feature-length film Ratcatcher.
