FRONTLINE FOLKLORE

September 20 @ 19:30

Frontline Folklore + Director Q&A
Ben Edge, UK, 2021, 142m.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Ben Edge and editor Angelica Jopson.

Join the artist Ben Edge throughout the Ritual Year of 2019, a journey that began after serendipitously stumbling upon a Druid ceremony on Tower Hill, London, that lead to a life changing journey across the British Isle, in which he visited twenty folk customs and unknowingly captured and documented the pre Covid ritual landscape, as well highlighting and celebrating the importance of community, creativity and the often overlooked, yet thriving folk culture that can be found across Britain today.

About the artist –

Ben Edge is an artist, songwriter, film maker, author and folklorist, whose work depicts the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Ever since serendipitously stumbling on a Druid ceremony on Tower Hill, London, Edge has been obsessively documenting the seasonal customs of Britain and beyond, establishing himself as a rising star in both the art world and as a leading voice in what he describes as the ‘Folk Renaissance’. In 2021, Edge displayed his Frontline series at the Crypt gallery of the St Pancras New Church, in an exhibition titled ‘Ritual Britain’ that attracted over 10,000 thousand visitors with extensive media coverage and viral exposure across social media.
