Peter Delpeut and Stef Tijdink return to the north of England, where twenty years ago they made the travel movie In Loving Memory. Back then, they fell in love with the landscape of the Yorkshire Dales and the "Englishness" of the English. Does this land still exist?
Peter Delpeut and Stef Tijdink return to the north of England, where twenty years ago they made the travel movie In Loving Memory. Back then, they fell in love with the landscape of the Yorkshire Dales and the "Englishness" of the English. Does this land still exist?
They found a different land. Not because the English had changed, but because they looked with different eyes. Walk the Land became a film about the English obsession with walking and the romance of the countryside. But its image turned out to be more ambiguous than expected. "To whom does the landscape belong?" was a question which hadn't occurred to them before. Hidden behind each magnificent view there are veiled histories, they learnt. And they talked to Englishmen they didn't meet twenty years ago.
