Britain on Film: Rural Life - rare archive films screening at QUAD, Derby in April

There's a chance to see a screening of rare archive films looking at the British countryside and way of life at QUAD in April. Britain On Film: Rural Life is a collection of films from 1904 to 1981, and it is the second programme from the series ‘Britain On Film’.

Rural Life is an evocative exploration of the countryside of the United Kingdom, taking in the diverse and beautiful landscapes of all the home nations. Looking at the work of the local blacksmith preparing shoes for the horses that will plough the fields, to the shepherd’s trials as he protects his flock from an encroaching storm. The films show homemade entertainment with the giggles of children at the country fair and joyful freedoms of the dance in the village hall.
Touching on all the technological, industrial and social changes that affected our countryside throughout the 20th Century, these films evoke and encourage not only nostalgia, but also broader and more meaningful reflections on the nature of rural life and village communities in Britain today.
