Derek Jarman, Journey to Avebury, 1971.

Via Sighsandwhispers

This is a Super8 film by Derek Jarman which captures this quiet, ghostly aura of this ancient Druid site in England.

Sighsandwhispers says,
"While Stonehenge was very impressive, it was at Avebury stone circle that I felt an immediate connection with my surroundings, which I've come to realise is the closest to a spiritual Other that I have ever encountered. The semi-constant appearance of the monoliths at Avebury in my dreams has precipitated a waking interest in reading the histories of Druidic Britain"
