The film Gifts, originated from eight objects that were traditionally given in England, to welcome a new child into the world: Egg, Coal, Evergreen, Salt, Candle, Bread, Coin and Silver.
Each symbolic gift has been the theme of a public event, created by Artist Clare Whistler, in collaboration with leading artists, musicians, poets and documented from 2005-2015 by established filmmakers. Gifts is an interpretation of the eight events, directed by Nichola Bruce.The film brings together English traditions of ritual and landscape. Financed by Gift Economy movement and Arts Council England.
