After over a year of development, the new Bartitsu documentary (watch the trailer here) is now in the final stages of post-production. Hosted by Tony Wolf, Bartitsu: The Lost Martial Art of Sherlock Holmes traces the history, loss, rediscovery and modern revival of E.W. Barton-Wright’s “New Art of Self Defence”. The documentary was shot in Italy, Switzerland, the UK and the USA and features interviews with martial arts historians Harry Cook and Graham Noble, authors and Bartitsu enthusiasts Mark Donnelly, Will Thomas and Neal Stephenson, and self defence historian Dr. Emelyne Godfrey.
The 55-minute documentary is an international co-production between the Cletarte cultural association, Broken Art, Ran Arthur Braun and Tony Wolf and will be distributed by the Freelance Academy Press.
