Electric Sheep Podcast: Wicker Man / Buried Land

Electric Sheep Podcast: Wicker Man / Buried Land

In this special Halloween themed episode of the Electric Sheep Magazine podcast, Alex Fitch talks to three directors who have made films about man’s relationship with the land.
At this year’s Frightfest, Robin Hardy discusses his classic horror film The Wicker Man and its new, belated thematic sequel The Wicker Tree, a pair of films about fertility and terrifying pagan rites, while Larry Fessenden talks about his eco-themed monster movies No Telling, Wendigo and The Last Winter. Also, in a Q and A recorded at the East End Film Festival, Alex interviews Steven Eastwood, co-director of Buried Land, a ‘mockumentary’ / docudrama about the real-life discovery in a small town in Bosnia of an ancient, buried pyramid which may reinvent mankind’s knowledge of pre-Christian architecture and empire building, but in the short term has changed the fortunes of people in the area.
