The Outer Edges’ is a unique long-form collaboration between Karl Hyde (Underworld, Tomato) and BAFTA award winning director Kieran Evans (‘Finisterre’, ‘Kelly + Victor’).
A seventy-minute film that tracks a peripheral route from north Essex to the Thames, ‘The Outer Edges’ documents a journey that follows the flow of the River Roding from its source to its conclusion at Barking Creek and along the Thames Gateway to Tilbury.
Stopping off variously at allotments, boxing clubs, Saturday markets and working men’s clubs, the film celebrates the vibrant energy and attitudes of the people living and working within London’s invisible borders — the unmapped boundaries that Hyde crossed each day to record ‘Edgeland’, his first solo album.
