Carl Barat-narrated film airs in London
The Mark Donne-directed film, titled The Rime Of The Modern Mariner, was broadcast at St Anne’s Church in Limehouse as part of the East End Film Festival.
Rossomando led a band including Klaxons‘ Jamie Reynolds and Steffan Halperin, Babyshambles‘ Drew McConnell and Rose Elinor Dougall to perform the film’s music live in front of the screen the documentary was being shown on.
The film examined the London Docks past and present, featuring interviews with former and current dockers mariners, many of whom were in the church to watch the premiere.
“It was something Mark had talked about drunkenly,” Barat told NME.COM of how he got involved in the project. “It came into fruition through Mark‘s doggedness and persistence. He’s just got up there and done something – everyone involved has been involved because of the love of something.”
