Morris On

Some stills from the 2011 documentary 'Way Of The Morris', about the folk dance tradition of Addebury, Oxfordshire (from the distant past to 1914; revived in 1975 and still thriving).

Nicely shot and put together, the film is very interesting when sticking to the point but slowly drifts into becoming more about the presenter and co-director than the dance, eventually degenerating into a shot of him wandering thoughtfully through the long grass with a Morris stick over his shoulder, like an outtake from a David Soul video.
