DESCRIPTION

Luke Fowler’s 61-minute film The Poor Stockinger, the Luddite Cropper and the Deluded Followers of Joanna Southcott is exhibited in Scotland for the first time at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. The film builds a portrait of the Marxist historian and activist E P Thompson using both newly shot and found film footage, along with a voiceover and musical score composed especially for Fowler’s work.
