The Lacey Rituals
d. Lacey Family / 1973 / UK / 63 mins
VT1 @ BFI Stephen Street (London, UK)
There’s something glorious, something quietly revolutionary about this underrated gem of 1970s documentary experimentation. Bruce Lacey – artist, filmmaker, inventor, urban spaceman, pagan ritualist and Beatles lawnmower – guides his young family in a demonstration of the quotidian rituals that are largely written out of everyday cinema.
