Talented parkour athlete Georgia Munroe stars in short film that highlights the individual's relationship with the city.

In scenes reminiscent of that parkour chase in Casino Royale, a new short film Message in a Bottle features talented freerunner Georgia Munroe on a fictional quest to save London.

The beautifully shot short, made by Welsh filmmaker Jamie Jones, showcases Georgia’s effortless athleticism – jumping huge gaps, running rooftops and shimmying down lampposts – as well as some of London’s most iconic architecture – from the Barbican to the financial district (as seen from Greenwich park).

The easy way Georgia moves through the concrete jungle combined with the dramatic twist at the end of the film raises questions of freedom and space in a city that seems, at the moment, on the brink of eating itself alive.
