All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Jack-in-the-Green 16mm Film


My thanks to no-w-here for allowing us to add a link to the wonderful 16mm film that was created at the workshop they ran in May this year. You can view the film HERE

Experimental Folklore: Jack-in-the-Green was a 16mm workshop which centred around the possibilities of recording and representing folk traditions as live events on film. The workshop examined how the sensorial aspects of  live traditions might be captured on film through the mechanics and optics of the 16mm camera, examining conceptual and practical concerns of the use of film, and the role of the artist filmmaker in the exploration of such performances. This short edit comes from all the footage shot on the workshop by participants. Sound was recorded digitally and added in post production. For details of similar workshops please see’s workshop page on their website

Thanks to Fowler’s Troop and Sarah Crofts who organise the Deptford Jack-in-the-Green every May 1st. For more information please see: /
