• Short Summary

    Thai children at the Pestalozzi Children's Village take part in the Festival of Floating Light.

  • Description

    Sedlescombe, East Sussex.

    At the Pestalozzi Children's Village we see two Thai children lighting joss sticks and placing them on a shrine to Buddha as part of the religious Festival of Floating Light (? Lights?). The children pray before the shrine.

    Various shots show these and two other Thai children dancing to traditional Thai music, presumably as part of the ceremony; Thai and Arabic children sit around watching.

    Note: see also CP 455 - Pestalozzi Village and CP 685 - Village of Peace. Cuts exist - see separate record.
