Eric Ravilious: Drawn to War
[ Special Event )
Join us for this unique film screening of Eric Ravilious: Drawn to War, followed by a Q&A with director and Ravilious expert, Margy Kinmonth.
Eric Ravilious: Drawn to War is a true story about an artist as compelling and enigmatic as his art. Set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspire him, Margy Kinmonth’s film brings to life this brilliant but still grossly undervalued British artist. Caught in the crossfire of war 80 years ago, Ravilious’s legacy largely sank without trace, until now.
Made with the blessing of the Ravilious Estate, this first full length feature documentary about Ravilious unfolds in his own words, through previously unseen private correspondence and rare archive film.
Shot entirely on location in the UK, Portugal and Ireland, the film features Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane with Freddie Fox, Tamsin Greig and many more.
Enjoy the film screening in the unique setting of our art store and put your questions to film director Margy Kinmonth during the Q&A.
