Witchcraft Documentaries of the 1970s
– Lecture – Gary Parsons
This event is now sold out.
“Wicca rode on the countercultural sentiment of the late 60s onward. The 60s were a technicolour era, when recreational drugs got big, as did sexual liberation and a mass distrust of authority.” Dazed interviewed film expert Gary Parsons on this aluring subject. Parsons comes to Treadwells to discuss the portrayals of witchcraft in teh documentaries of the early 1970s, considering also the involvement of people in Wicca at the time. Clips from rituals and interviews help show what Parsons means when he says witchcraft was an important part of the alternative scene in Britain. Gary Parson interview in full.
