The true story of Eric Ravilious - one of Britain's greatest landscape artists - is as compelling and enigmatic as his art.

Set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspired 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.

Shot entirely on location in the UK, Portugal, and Ireland, the film features Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane with Freddie Fox, Tamsin Greig, and many more.

A one-off screening followed by a live Q&A with director Margy Kinmonth and Bristol-based curator James Russell.
