Britain on Film: Rural Life (U)
Join us for a trip down the country lanes of the past, meandering through the dwindling customs of another era. Relive the work of the local blacksmith, and follow the shepherd as he protects his flock. Be swept up in the homemade entertainment of children at the country fair and the joyful dance in the village hall. Touching on the technological, industrial and social changes these archive films provoke reflection on the nature of rural life and village communities.
