Way of the Morris
Running Time: 64 mins.
Genre: Dance, Documentary, Foreign
A look at Morris dancing, one of England's most ancient and enduring roots traditions. To the average man on the street, it is seen as little more than a national joke. Here, filmmaker Tim Plester goes on a deeply personal journey from the barleyfields of his childhood to the killing fields of The Somme, in search of a connection with these much-maligned native dances that run deep in his bloodline.
