Film News: Way of the Morris

Morris dancing is one of England’s most ancient and enduring roots traditions. And yet to your average man-jack on the street, it’s seen as little more than a national joke. And a bad national joke at that.

A heartfelt ode to his agrarian roots, 'Way of the Morris' follows filmmaker Tim Plester on a journey from the English village green to the killing fields of The Somme, in search of a connection with the much-maligned native dance traditions that run deep in his blood.

A recipient of a FourDocs bursary, 'Way of the Morris' features contributions from Billy Bragg and Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie.

Scheduled screening at the South by Southwest®(SXSW®), Austin, Texas on Sunday March 13th 2011
