The Nettle Dress (2023)
The Nettle Dress is an enchanting and thought provoking British documentary from upcoming Dartmouth film studios.
After the death of his beloved wife, textile artist Allan Brown embarks on a seven-year endeavour to weave a hand-spun dress from stinging nettles foraged in the woods surrounding his home.
This moving film is a modern day fairy-tale and hymn to the healing power of nature, slow craft and sustainability.
A special pre-recorded Q&A with the director, Dylan Howitt, follows the screening.
