DescriptionMYSTERIES is a photomontage film. Beginning with a quotation from a dream, it becomes the film-maker's interpretation of the harvest and the old mystic theme of the Mysteries: 'The women are celebrating the Mysteries on the beach at Penmon...no-one is watching...the sound of the general waves crashing against the bank of pebbles; the sound of the barley waving... someone holds out her hand, holds it open against the sea. Perhaps it is my hand, the hand holds three ears of barley...' (Judith Higginbottom)
