Beneath the dull glare of night-time sodium lighting, three men play dominoes, seemingly unaware of the silent, silver suited man behind them holding aloft a mounted buzzard.

When he utters a strange unearthly sound, the men briefly look up then resume their game.

In broad daylight wearing a horse head and pelt, the same man strides purposely through Elephant & Castle's shopping centre. Standing high on a balcony wearing white-lensed shades, he oversees the concrete urban-scape below.

The man is Marcus Coates, artist, shaman and showman whose latest nether-worldly journey takes him deep into a community facing significant social upheaval...

Vision Quest: A Ritual for Elephant & Castle is a feature-length film part documentary, part performance, part art, part archive - exploring the major transitions currently taking place in the south London neighbourhood.
