Many Thanks to Alan and Jo Waters for their Kind permission to add this film to the List.
Soul of fire shows a rare earth burn (traditional charcoal burn) by Alan Waters that takes place over three days in a Woodland near Chichester.
It happens only once a year on 11th August, Saint Alexander’s Day – the patron saint of charcoal burning. This 8000 year old craft has changed the world.
