EVENT CANCELLED

The Friends of the Pitt Rivers had originally planned to show edited highlights of this film on the evening of Wednesday 16 April. It has now been decided to wait until the film has been released and then show the finished version.

It should be a wonderful film to show when it's fully edited and has been launched etc. and is available on DVD. Meanwhile, a major article on the tentmakers is due out in Hali magazine and there are a couple of doctorates on the subject in the pipeline so there should be good material to aid promotion for a showing at a later date (2015?)

Huge apologies from the Friends of the Pitt Rivers for this change of plan.
