Mapping a London of timeworn shops and cafés, derelict housing estates and gentrified neighbourhoods, Finisterre was the first Saint Etienne collaboration with acclaimed filmmakers Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans, and it offers a pitch-perfect homage to a city and its inhabitants. The film features a host of well-known voices who’ve made the capital their own and is soundtracked by Saint Etienne.
