Where to watch By Our Selves
The film focuses on two figures, sometimes Andrew Kötting, sometimes Toby Jones as the middle-aged John Clare. As they channel, in their own fashion, the psychic wound exposed by Clare. John Clare is alone, between the two communities of the Epping Forest asylum and the hospital in Northamptonshire. Kötting is dressed as a straw bear, (an alter-ego and metaphor for otherness). At the mercy of the voices and visions and the hard realities of the road.... eating the hedgerow, sleeping on gravel, foot-foundered but determined. Framing the narrative momentum of the walk -- in the acoustic footsteps of Clare -- is the more complex drama of the two asylum interludes. The forest edge in High Beach, the meeting with the gypsies. The desperation of being lost, with no sense of direction, among the ancient trees. The actor Freddie Jones (father of Toby) plays the older Clare in his final Northamptonshire incarceration. At the point when his identity is lost. Written byUlf Kjell Gür

" Yes, distance yourself to the margins of the universe; hopefully, unless it's some cringing "and we have now something you really do regret" moment; you can be forgiven by not uttering a syllable in this pretentious twaddle, that looks like a GCSE p' poor performance Drama moment, unworthy of comment"
