East Devon AONB – ‘Back to the Future’

A project sprung up in 2009 in the beautiful hills of East Devon to collect and preserve archive film that had lain dormant in people’s cupboards and attics for years, and make the footage available to the public. The result so far is this – a beautifully compiled and narrated short film that documents life in East Devon from another age. The project will also see the creation of a website where everyone can access the raw footage, with the aim of uploading dozens of newly digitised pieces of film.

Screened at Bicton College Country Fayre, June 2011
