Feature film – Drawn to War

The acclaimed film about official British war artist, Eric Ravilious.

Another opportunity to see the first major feature film about Eric Ravilious, the much loved but hugely underestimated British Official War Artist killed in a plane crash over Iceland in 1942.

The film recounts the life as compelling and enigmatic as his art, set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspired him and asks what his life and art tells us about one of Britain’s most innovative artists and designers.

The story is told in Ravilious’s own words using a wealth of material drawn from a treasure trove of private correspondence and previously unseen archive.

Wonderful!…¬† ¬†EVENING STANDARD
