  Lost in Vagueness [read more]
  Glasto gusto
  Lost in Vagueness - the debut feature from director Sofia Olins - will tell the extraordinary untold story of Glastonbury Festival's most iconic and anarchic sideshow attraction, Lost Vagueness, and its ingenious but occasionally self-destructive creator Roy Gurvitz.

Filmed over twelve years, Lost in Vagueness traces Roy's story in intimate detail through his emergence from a group of new age travelers who made Glastonbury a stomping ground in the eighties, to anarchic impresario, and on to a troubled creative force struggling to belong in a changing world.

A reaction to Glastonbury's post-Thatcher malaise, Lost Vagueness started as a fancy-dress cabaret and flourished into a festival-within-a-festival: an incredible twisted pastiche of the Vegas strip encompassing variety performers from dance to burlesque to circus to freakshow to pyrotechnic scrapheap robots, as well as a casino, a wedding chapel, hot tubs and a boxing ring.

The film combines exclusive footage of Lost Vagueness at the height of its hedonistic powers with in-depth interviews with Roy, his loyal but increasingly exasperated producer Leila Jones, Glastonbury stalwarts Michael and Emily Eavis and Melvin Benn, and artists including Suggs, Kate Tempest, Keith Allan, Fatboy Slim and legendary cabaret performer Mouse.

Pre-screenings from 8th May at Everyman Cinemas. Watch the trailer above.
