UnTyMe - 'Relic Edition'
‘UnTyMe’ is a collaborative world devised by musician HforSpirit and director Nick Hadfield.
Existing in the grey area between documentary and fiction, UnTyMe emerges from a body of research instigated by the filmmakers and carried out by a group of multi-disciplinary artists featured in the film.
An exploration of stories, symbols and devotional song & dance connected to Anglo-Celtic folklore lays the path for a participatory film where the line between performance and reality is blurred.
Spurred on by the prospect of filming a road trip to escape the increasingly banal reality closing in, the group undergo an unhinged awakening amongst the relics of rural rave culture.
To celebrate the multifaceted aspects of UnTyMe, a collection of various artefacts has been devised, as a holistic package and full embodiment of the project.
