Eric Ravilious – Drawn to War

Certificate PG.  Running time: 1hr 27 mins.  Documentary. Doors open at 7.00 pm

Tickets: £7.50 (plus booking fee)

ERIC RAVILIOUS – DRAWN TO WAR is the first major feature film about Eric Ravilious (1903-1942), the much loved but hugely underestimated British Official War Artist artist, killed in a plane crash over Iceland in 1942. Featuring contributions from artists Ai Weiwei and Grayson Perry, writers Alan Bennett and Robert Macfarlane, the film recounts a life as compelling and enigmatic as his art, set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspired him.

Eric Ravilious

The story is told in Ravilious’s own words through a wealth of material drawn from a treasure trove of private correspondence and previously unseen archive. The film features the voices of Freddie Fox, Tamsin Greig, Jeremy Irons and Harriet Walter.

The film is written and produced by Margy Kinmonth for Foxtrot Films. A BAFTA and RTS Award winner and known for such work as Naked Hollywood, Royal Paintbox and Revolution: New Art for a New World, Margy says: “As a filmmaker and artist myself, I am telling the story of an artist whose life was cut short by conflict. Ravilious was a brilliant painter whose art portrays a very British way of life, creating his unique point of view at a time of historic change. The film asks what his life and art tells us about the elusive concept of Englishness, and what it means to be a war artist.”
