Rag 1961

Rag week brings the city of Leicester to a halt with enforced silliness on a surprising scale, including a 100-mile pram race

Amateur film 1961 mins


Cliches of student life are both confirmed and challenged in this filmic 'Rag mag'. It's hard not to be impressed by the serious work behind the silliness, which can organise a non-stop relay pram race from London's Leicester Square to Leicester Town Hall, and a parade that brings a bustling city to a halt - at which point the film kicks into "Glorious Kodachrome" colour.
