    Scantily clad dancers perform ancient sun worshiping rites - not as exciting as it sounds.

  • Description

    French title reads: "Les Nudists Et Le Soleil - Villennes-sur-Seine. Par une belle et claire jounee, les adeptes parisiens du nu celebrent le Fete du Soleil."

    Villennes-sur-Seine, France.

    Group of people walk forward in countryside setting. The women are wearing diaphanous gowns and the men are wearing loin cloths and carrying torches. CU Two naked young children (both girls). A man dressed as pan or puck dances with a young woman in a bikini style outfit. Group of men dance in front of mock up of pillars (Greek in style). Quick shot of a crowd watching.

    N.B. This may be some kind of celebration of the sun or a solstice ceremony.
