Details

The idyllic, rural past of a Suffolk village comes to life through the memories of an old man who tends a country graveyard, in this extraordinary, little-seen film from David Gladwell. Although best known for his celebrated work as editor on Lindsay Anderson's If.... and O Lucky Man!, Gladwell has, until now, rarely been recognised as the director of a number of groundbreaking films.
