A Special Event for Seaford’s WWI commemorations in collaboration with Arts@theCrypt
Set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918, a group of British officers is led by the mentally disintegrating Stanhope as they await their fate. Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter commented that ‘the film serves to illuminate how very different the British army – or any army – was then, with its class distinctions and comparatively polite conversational modes, and how differently wars are now fought.’
This is preceded by a short film in which Brighton poet Tommy Sissons recites Our Children Will Inhabit a Wilderness.
