A modern day dreamtime. The freedom of a life on the road with horses in an English Summer.
Travelling the length of the country and back again with a pair of horses and gypsy caravan, Live Before You Die is the ultimate horse-drawn road movie, following a band of Travellers with handcarts, goats, donkeys and ponies along green lanes to the fairs and festivals of England.
Shot by Tom LLoyd on a hand-cranked clockwork Russian super 8mm camera during a 9 month journey, the footage remained un-viewed for 13 years until seeing the light of day in 2008.
