The 2001 John Walker documentary The Fairy Faith was the very first movie I played in my studio once it had it's fresh coat of paint and I moved all my art stuff in several years ago. The full title is "The Fairy Faith - A breathtaking odyssey about fairies and those who belive in them" quite a mouthful, but a very in depth topic as well.
Since we just passed Midsummer and all that fairy energy is wafting and swirling about, the film came into my mind for Magical Movie Monday. Do you suppose that fairies are a fanciful race of made up beings with pixie dust who are all goodness and light that grant wishes? Take in this film for the real scoop on the Fae!
