A magical film!
28 January 2008 | by PhilAPSee all my reviews

Geoffrey Jones approached Edgar Anstey with this project. Edgar took a day and Mr Jones then filmed it. He spent ages cutting it to a specially recorded version of Sandy Nelson's "Let There Be Drums" (or was it "Teen Beat"?).

The result was a classic dated only by it's ephemeral images, not its style.

Many years ago John Huntley was to show it at Guildford Civic Hall - but was sent the Canadian Film Board's excellent short also entitled "Snow" instead.

Geoffrey Jones made 2 other films for BTF, "Rail" and "Locomotion", but only the first was also nominated for an Oscar. Two out of three ain't bad!
