Flora, Faddy Furry Dance Day

UK, 1989 (MIFF 1990)

Director: Richard Philpott

A hypnotic film. At first, one wonders why people of every age would be prepared to spend a day, repeating the same simple steps of a traditional dance. Slowly, the compelling beat of the local band begins to penetrate down to your bone marrow, and possibly you hope that somewhere there exists a partner of the opposite sex who has been equally seduced.
