At Glastonbury 2011 Temple explores Shangri-La, Arcadia, the Unfairground, Block 9 and the Common. Here, like a futuristic graphic novel, the Festival reconnects with its radical, counter cultural origins.
The director said he had 6000hrs of footage to watch and as I watched the film at TIFF I felt that he was bogged down. Ironically footage was repeated! If you have that much, why would you show it more than once. Early footage fascinating. Film lost me post WW2 to 1980s then picked up again. Got confusing at times and jumped around. Expected focus on 1960s, such an amazing time for pop culture in London but instead the film focused on political side. No mention of the Beatles, realize they are from Liverpool but having British family I know they had a huge impact on those in London. Old woman stole the show! I wish she had narrated the film and taken us through the 100yrs.
