You might have heard that SIFF is showing a film call MORRIS: A Life With Bells On next weekend. BUT did you know that over 100 Morris dancers from BC to AZ in traditional costumes will be dancing at McCaw Hall for the North American premiere? Here is their website:

Chaz Oldham the writer/lead actor/co-producer will be in Seattle to help promote the film. They need to make a big splash so MORRIS to be picked up by a big movie distributor.

He is available for interviews from May 20-26.

Thanks for spreading the word. I can send you a press release if you like...

Anyway thanks
