Luke Fowler's 2006 film Pilgrimage from Scattered Points is an enigmatic documentary and portrait in film of the English composer Cornelius Cardew and the rise and fall of his legendary Scratch Orchestra. Adopting a philosophy of 'anyone can play', the Scratch Orchestra represented a radical spirit of change and challenge to accepted social order. Fowler elegantly contemporises this historical moment, shaping the film through his characteristic collage of super eight footage, first-person interviews and re-interpreted texts. Fowler's lightness of touch is immediately engaging and brings an endearing human dimension to the work. Luke Fowler is the recipient of the 2008 Jarman Award.
