One of Britain’s greatest landscape artists, Eric Ravilious, is killed in a plane crash while on commission as Official War Artist in Iceland in 1942. His life is as compelling and enigmatic as his art, set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspired him. This film brings to life this unique and still grossly undervalued British artist caught in the crossfire of war.

This is the first full length feature documentary about Eric Ravilious, told in his own words through previously unseen private correspondence.

Shot entirely on location in UK, Portugal and Ireland, the film asks what it is to be a war artist. Featuring Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane and many more, the film is released in Ravilious’ 80th anniversary year.
