A story of love, loss, and learning to let go before it is too late. Based on Ralph Vaughan Williams’s song cycle from 1909 and the poetry of A. E. Housman and told through a visually striking blend of traditional shadow puppetry and contemporary animation.
The film is edited live by its director Jeremy Hamway-Bidgood during performances by tenor Daniel Norman, pianist Sholto Kynoch, and the Brodsky Quartet. This means that the performers are not tied to a click track and the performance can be truly spontaneous and a unique experience for each venue and each audience.
It also exists in a cinematic version with a prerecorded soundtrack. This film has been selected for many film festivals and won a slew of awards internationally.
