    • Synopsis
    • A 6,000-mile journey zig-zagging around the coast of Britain, Gallivant (1996) is both an experimental travelogue and an intensely personal story. Filmmaker Andrew Kötting begins the journey to bring Gladys, his 85-year old grandmother, and Eden, his 7-year old daughter, together. Gladys's stamina is limited, and Eden has Joubert's syndrome: she's not expected to live to adulthood. Both are fragile, and the journey is an opportunity which may not be repeated.
