Celebrate May Day with this fascinating new film by Rosalind Fowler, Folk in her Machine (2013). The film starts and ends in London, told from the perspective of a female narrator. It looks back on her archive of footage collected over the years on visits to two seasonal folk traditions, Haxey Hood in North Lincolnshire and May Day in Padstow. Her voice is interspersed with those of people she meets on her journeys, describing the significance of the rituals for them. Folk in Her Machine is a sensual film essay on the meaning of place and belonging in a global world, and a meditation on the nature of filmmaking. Shot on a combination of 16mm and digital cameras, the film is narrated by celebrated actor, Jodhie May. Rosalind Fowler is an artist filmmaker with a background in film, cultural geography and visual anthropology.
