Film Screening: Drawn to War by Eric Ravilious

July 17, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Margy Kinmonth’s film is the first major feature length film to be made about Eric Ravilious, the much loved but vastly underestimated landscape painter who became the first British War Artist to die in the Second World War.

Featuring conversations with such notable Ravilious admirers as Ai Weiwei, Grayson Perry, 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.

Made in co-operation with Imperial War Museums, the story is told in Ravilious’s own words through a wealth of material drawn with the blessing of his estate from a treasure trove of private correspondence and previously unseen archive. The film also features the voices of Freddie Fox, Tamsin Greig, Jeremy Irons and Harriet Walter.’ Foxtrot Films.
