Notes:

Fantasy/documentary film, inspired by a Midlands legend originating from the discovery of a female skeleton in a hollow elm tree in Hagley Wood in Stourbridge in 1943. This weirdly beautiful film explores her possible identity and fate - was she a witch? a spy?

The DVD comes with three accompanying postcards. The director, Tom Lee Rutter, donated a set of these postcards to the Museum when he visited while the film was still in production - they have been catalogued as Museum objects (id. no. 3819).
