Bruce, Rituals and Super 8

Just an article I wrote for the British Film Institute about Bruce Lacey while I was making our film about him. I was very enchanted by Bruce’s use of Super 8, which is really remarkable. I reference Derek Jarman‘s ‘Journey to Avebury’, a magical Super 8 film of a location close to Bruce’s heart, and here it is:

I believe the music is by Coil, again who have great paralels with Bruce’s own electronic music. I realise how lucky I have been to make a film about such a visionary British artist. I am not sure everyone ‘gets’ Bruce Lacey, as he is a difficult bugger to label or put in a box, but he’s a great romantic, someone I admire deeply.
