ERIC RAVILIOUS: DRAWN TO WAR Q&A

Thursday 7th July, 2022

Set against the dramatic locations that inspired him, Drawn to War brings to life a brilliant but still grossly undervalued British artist, Eric Ravilious. Caught in the crossfire of war 80 years ago, his legacy largely sank without trace, until now.

The life of the British watercolourist and wood-engraver, who died in 1942 aged 39, unfolds in his own words, through previously unseen private correspondence and rare archive film.

Featuring interviews with Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane and many more.

The screening on the 7th of July was followed by a Q&A with director Margy Kinmonth, actor Tamsin Greig and Imperial War Museum curator Claire Brenard. Hosted by film critic Francesca Peacock.
