A folk horror wrapped up in an archive film, set to a soundtrack by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), and in cinemas UK-wide from 21 June http://www.bfi.org.uk/whats-on/bfi-fi...


Scouring 100 years of archive footage, BAFTA-winner Paul Wright constructs an exhilarating study of the British people’s shifting — and contradictory — relationship to the land. The film goes on a sensory, visceral journey through the contrasting seasons, taking in folk carnivals and fetes, masked parades, water divining, and harvesting. Set to a grand, expressive new score from Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) alongside folk music from the likes of Anne Briggs, Wright’s captivating film essay captures the beauty and brutality, and the magic and madness of rural Britain.

Holy shit this looks amazing.

Missed this completely.

I've been binge watching this series. Some are great some less so. This one was particularly enjoyable, featuring a lot of familiar faces and folk horror tropes.

This series often turns up on here in some form. Whenever it does always have to give a kudos to @nlgbbbblth . Bought the dvd set after a recommendation from him years ago. It can be hit or miss but when it’s hit it’s brilliant. Some great episodes that hit the folk horror boxes
