(Tim Plester / UK / 2011 / 71 minutes / Certificate 12A)
A heartfelt ode to his agrarian roots, ‘Way of the Morris’ follows award- winning film-maker Tim Plester on a journey from the English village green and barley fields of his childhood, to the killing fields of the Somme, as he searches for a connection with the much-maligned native dance traditions that run deep in his blood.
Featuring contributions from singer/songwriter Billy Bragg and Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie, what emerges is a poignant and evocative
exploration of the origins and impulses behind Morris dancing, and an attempt to understand its place within enchanted Albion’s ongoing story.
Also screening before the film is the acclaimed short ‘King Cone’, by local filmmaker Bertie Telezynski.
Very special guests on the night will be the Bristol Morris Men who will be showcasing the Cotswolds Morris Style of dancing that is their forte.
To start the evening off, Live Timeline Actions (LTA) will be initiating a deterritorialised set of energies in the garden or the bar (depending on the weather) which may or may not result in a discrete fertility
force field encompassing the Cube.
