a Northern English landscape with rolling hills is intersected by drystone walls, stone houses, and trees in sepia-like tones of green, brown and burnt yellow. Looming large on the horizon above the more tranquil valley are 27 white surveillance radomes. The sky is a flat grey behind these huge geodesic domes.

On Clogger Lane is a new experimental documentary by Andrew Black.

The film meanders through a depopulated Yorkshire valley, exploring the infrastructures of capital on land overshadowed by a monstrous satellite surveillance station, submerged beneath reservoirs, haunted by accusations of witchcraft, and populated by the traces of many generations of past inhabitants – from prehistoric carvings to the Victorian graves of child labourers.

Incorporating conversations with farmers, antiquarians, dowsers, grandmothers, Quakers, landowners and communists alongside an improvisational score, On Clogger Lane explores the meeting points of passivity and protest, public and private, past and present, all coincident in the same patch of ancient land.

Andrew Black is the recipient of the Margaret Tait Award 2020, a LUX Scotland commission delivered in partnership with Glasgow Film, supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
