Song of summer based on Delius as I knew him by Eric Fenby.
"The visionary award-winning English director, Ken Russell, is best known for his attention to detail and his flamboyant and controversial style. As the first documentary film maker to use re-enactments, he established himself as a ground-breaking pioneer.
