Our regular contributor Chrissy D thought she might not like the film she was about to review for The F-Word:

"I thought Forest of the Dancing Spirits might be hard to watch for me as a feminist attachment parent who likes to celebrate evolution, attachment, the imperative maternal role and women's community. This documentary makes no bones about shattering some of the illusions of idyll and tranquility that native communities are often seen as embodying."

Forest of the Dancing Spirits will have its UK premiere followed by a Q&A on Thursday 12 June at London's Riverside Studios.
