Arcadia (12A)

Venue: The Corn Hall

Directed by Paul Wright, UK, 1hr 18mins, 2018

Combining over 100 years of archive film, BAFTA award winning director Paul Wright constructs an exhilarating study of the British people’s shifting —  and contradictory — relationship to the land,  going on a sensory journey through the contrasting seasons, taking in folk carnivals and fetes, masked parades, water divining and harvesting.

Set to a grand, expressive new score alongside folk music, this captivating film captures the beauty, brutality, magic and madness of rural Britain.
