Eric Ravilious: Drawn to War
Date: 29/11/2022 Times: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We are showing this film just after the Wivenhoe Art Trail and as a tribute to a great English artist who has a headstone, with his wife Tirzah Garwood, in the Copford Church cemetery. There will be a raffle going on through November and the prize will be a limited edition print by esteemed Wivenhoe artist, Charlotte Bernays.

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. There are also interviews with Ai Weiwei and National Treasures, Alan Bennett and Grayson Perry, amongst others.

Tickets on the door only, by card only.
