British-Ghanaian artist Larry Achiampong's most ambitious film to date. Set in a pandemic, Wayfinder follows the Wanderer, a young girl (Perside Rodrigues) on an intrepid journey across England.

Travelling from North to South, from the ancient paths of Hadrian's Wall to a housing estate in Wellingborough, the Wanderer caresses the British landscape. Passing through different regions, towns and terrains, encountering people, stories and situations on her way, the Wanderer acts as a witness to accounts, conversations, places and histories.

Wayfinder is an epic film about class and economic exclusion, belonging and displacement, cultural heritage and the meaning of home.
