So, Lady Calamity and I were in Cornwall last week - and a local friend suggested we go to Newlyn cinema to check out a new film by filmmaker Christopher Morris. I'm so glad we heeded that tip off.

Here's the blurb:

"Weathering the elements in the centre of a field in West Cornwall is the Longstone, a natural relic that has quietly witnessed 4,000 years of tumultuous history. Morris’ elegiac, meditative, yet profoundly important film is the record of a year in the life of the monolith, beginning on Winter Solstice 2020, as the order of the natural world began unravelling around the globe and the threat of extreme climate change became a reality. Beautifully shot, with a richly layered sound design, the film meditates on the passage of time through its appreciation of nature, highlighting the subtle changes of the seasons, but also the need to act in order to battle man-made changes that will forever change our planet."

A review:

Having spent much of our break visiting the stones, it was lovely to see Boscawen-Ros starring in the film.
