Almost a year ago, Gina (Birch, from the Raincoats) made a series of feminist banners for a re-staged feminist march; the idea has been bubbling along and this morning we met at The Serpentine (some of us in seventies gear) to appear in a film she is making. It was cold and grey; rain was in the air. Richard Branson's helicopter passed above us, low in the sky, first one way and then the other. Tourists photographed us, or asked to join in. Her friend's daughter filmed part of it, Gina filmed part of it and Hayley Newman filmed part of it. We all chatted, chanted, interfered, shouted, ran, marched and synchronised. It was a great way to spend an autumnal Saturday morning and I think the film should be a lot of fun! (think it's for one of The Raincoats new songs, but I'm not sure).
