Storyline

In 1966 a few eccentric Berkeley college students got together to recreate the last tournament of the Golden Age of Chivalry. Today their legacy lives on in an international organization known as the Society for Creative Anachronism where lords and ladies, knights and artisans create an intricate subculture that even pervades the participants' real lives. Honor and chivalry are the words of the day, but each member struggles to find their own meaning and way amidst the social dynamics that are inherent in any large group. "In Service to the Dream" chronicles a 9-month span in the lives of the populace of the kingdom of Caid, where kings and queens rise and fall, but thousands of people all seem to march to the beats of similar drums. Written by Christopher Burns

I viewed this film a short time ago, after learning of its release and found it to be a very well made film about the well known "SCA". I have watched guys fight at my local parks and thought it was an interesting group of people, to say the least... The film showed a side to the SCA that only one that was in the SCA experience, one that I knew little of. The film was an excellent "documentary style", behind the scenes look at the whole group, from the rise and fall, to unique interviews with the people "as themselves".
