Also see ‘Rites & Rituals’: a great movie with archive footage: A unique film short capturing three decades of British folkloric traditions, edited by Ruth Hogben from documentary footage captured by filmmaker and curator Doc Rowe:

  1. That whole video made me quite emotional actually! Wonderful wonderful stuff!

  2. Y.e.s.! Inspiring, and it is good to see how this project turned out!

  3. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

  4. Very exciting to watch!

  5. So beautiful. Thanks for blogging this. I will be sharing it around, too!
