Armistice Day this November marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. To commemorate the occasion we’re holding a special screening of Sheffield based artist and filmmaker Esther Johnson’s Asunder. The film is a beautiful and moving documentary collage of both archive and contemporary material that tells the story of what happened to an English town during WWI, with almost all of its men abroad fighting and its women and children left behind. Asunder presents the stories of people from Tyneside and Wearside to uncover what life was like on the home front, with bombs falling on Britain for the first time, conscientious objectors sentenced to death, and women working as doctors, tram conductors and footballers.
