Arcadia 12A

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.
