Eric Ravilious: Drawn To War (PG)
Dir: Margy Kinmonth | UK | 2022 | 88 mins (PG)
One of Britain’s most innovative artists and designers, Eric Ravilious was as compelling and enigmatic as his art. A varied, restless creator, he produced exquisitely distinctive watercolours, wood engravings, ceramic designs and book illustrations before his untimely death in a plane crash while on commission as an Official War Artist in Iceland in 1942. Set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspired him, acclaimed director Margy Kinmonth’s superb documentary brings to life this brilliant, well-known, much-loved British artist; featuring Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry and Robert Macfarlane amongst other contributors and admirers, and released to coincide with the 80th anniversary of Ravilious's death.
