The latest in Jackal Films project from Alice Lowe and Jacqueline Wright is now online.
The short, entitled Roots, also features friend-of-the-Boosh Antony Elvin, who some of you may have seen in The Mighty Boosh series three, or live at Booshfest a few years ago. He’s also a regular on the London music circuit both in his own, unique right, and as a member of the space-prog folk band Circulus.
The film takes a swipe at the ridiculous lives of a folk-drenched couple, their worship of vegetables, sexual problems and fornication with ancient castle ruins. It’s as bonkers as ever, and will no doubt appeal to fans of Christopher Guest (This Is Spinal Tap, Best In Show, A Mighty Wind). It’s much slower and gentler comedy than you may be used to, but stick with it, and you’ll reap its rewards.
