Welcome to Usma [Christopher Sherwood, UK, 2020]

According to our presenter and guide for the day, Christopher Bleak, Usma is famous for four main things: race walking, a cracking outdoor gym, a lake full of eels and a spooky sculpture tour. Written and directed by Christopher Sherwood, this comic spoof on tourist promotional videos takes us on a tour of some beautiful scenery from the small Latvian village. Unfortunately, this is the film’s most notable charm as many of the jokes fall flat and a bizarre attempt at horror is more confusing than terrifying.
