Adele Schmidt e José Zegarra Holder di Zeitgeist Media annunciano di voler procedere entro fine anno alla realizzazione di un nuovo capitolo, il terzo, nella serie di documentari intitolata Romantic Warriors-A Progressive Music Saga. Al centro dell'attenzione sarà questa volta la cosiddetta 'scuola di Canterbury', con materiali d'archivio e contributi da parte dei principali protagonisti di quell'epoca - Wilde Flowers, Soft Machine, Caravan, Gong, Egg, Matching Mole, Hatfield and The North, Gilgamesh e National Health naturalmente, ma anche Quiet Sun, Supersister e The Muffins - oltre a numerose interviste raccolte ai giorni nostri. Una campagna di finanziamento dell'opera - dal titolo, forse provvisorio, Canterbury Tales - è in corso presso Indiegogo.

It is our pleasure to introduce to you our third film in the Romantic Warriors-A Progressive Saga series that will guide you through the amazing history, development of the Canterbury Scene and its influence on contemporary bands. The Canterbury Scene of the late 60s and early 70s marked a remarkable period in the history of British progressive rock music and, most notably, the development of jazz rock. A number of later bands that formed outside of Canterbury have been labeled as “Canterbury bands” (including a few in Europe and the US), some of these bands were founded by a member of Soft Machine or Caravan while others were obviously influenced by these Canterbury groups. The scene was a breeding ground for world class players of considerable harmonic sophistication who innovated and expanded the music of their time. Through interviews with "Canterbury Scene" musicians, clips of live performances, photographs, and current/archival footage, the film takes a closer look at the bands that are now considered a part of the Canterbury Family Tree.
