Synopsis

A heartfelt ode to his agrarian roots, Way Of The Morris follows award-winning filmmaker Tim Plester on a journey from the English village green to the killing fields of The Somme, as he searches for a connection with the much-maligned native dance traditions that run deep in his bloodline.

Featuring contributions from singer/songwriter Billy Bragg and Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie, what emerges is a poignant and evocative exploration of the origins and impulses behind Morris dancing, and an attempt to understand its place within enchanted Albion's ongoing story.
