my friend eric

Reblogging this from Caught by the River. You know those older-farmer-types in Hot Fuzz that speak in practicallly unintelligble country accents?? (saying that with love you un'erstand) Well that is nothing...

My Friend Eric is the story of centenarian Eric Wortley and the agrarian tradition of East Anglia (east coast of England) that he represents. The film explores the decline of Eric's world, the importance of memory, and how this world clings to the past.

My Friend Eric is a work in progress, and the filmmaker Justin Partyka is working through the approximately 100 hours of video he has recorded. Expected to be ready for release in Summer 2010; trailer below.
