Wayfinder is the debut feature film from British-Ghanian artist Larry Achiampong. Set in a pandemic, it follows the Wanderer, a young girl played by Perside Rodrigues on an intrepid journey across England. Travelling from North to South, the Wanderer passes through different regions, towns and landscapes, encountering people, stories and situations on her way. This epic film builds a dialogue about class and economic exclusion, belonging and displacement, cultural heritage and the meaning of home.
A road movie of sorts, Wayfinder draws on British traditions of travel and exploration of the sublime landscape and the sea – reflecting on the division and crisis in the nation today. The film combines sweeping shots with poetic voice-over narratives, melded with real ‘vox pop’ testimonies, field recordings and an original orchestral score composed by Achiampong.
