If you are a Druid and live in the Derbyshire borders or can travel to the Derbyshire borders, we would like to call on you to be part of the documentary.
We are not seeking actors to play roles or learn lines, so this isn’t a casting call. Seeking people who live and breath Druidry. We have devised a series of questions exploring why you turned to Druidism and what Druidism means to you. Lost Histories are very transparent in our film making and not out there to make the druid order look bad, only to explore why following the path of Druidry has changed your life.
We want to make a documentary about your experiences as a druid.
I have come across some Druids who are reluctant to talk on camera about their journey in Druidism. They don’t want others to know one way or another, and I respect this and never push anything onto anyone if it makes them feel uncomfortable.
We will respect your choice of deity if you follow this path. I’ve come to understand this act is identity and ideological, (not necessarily religious), it refers to the practice of a chosen thought, and define the moral or spiritual commitment that you choose.
Like a Cernnunos who’s heart is in a tree that, spring morning, breathes life and freshness, extending its new leaves and tender and green shoots, Druidism although rooted in the distant past, is also vigorous and growing. We like to share this wisdom with a broader audience and promote Druidry with its old stories and old poems, the old oral wisdom, that intertwine to form the spiritual path that is called Druidism. Druidism is as ancient as it is alive today.
One can explore its ancient history, but to appreciate it, we as filmmakers must understand that it is fully alive, evolving and constantly changing. The documentary will visually look more like a giant tree, a flowing river, than a film. To take full measure is to climb the branches of the oak and to listen to the wind murmuring between its leaves and listen to the Druids as you express yourself through verse and rhyme.
