Inertia Variations – The Film

The Inertia Variations, a feature-length documentary by Matt Johnson (The The) and Johanna St Michaels—inspired by John Tottenham’s book of the same name—will be making the rounds in the UK this autumn. Matt Johnson’s recitation of ‘Inertia’ verses function as a sort of verbal soundtrack that is woven throughout the film as he reflects upon his own struggles with work-avoidance, indolence and related afflictions and affinities.
The film will run at the ICA in London from October 20th to 26th, followed by engagements in Bristol and Manchester.
