This short film from award-winning director Nichola Bruce illustrates the world of hidden stories and connections that mark Kent and its people out as particularly important in the impact and legacy of the First World War.
Nichola Bruce, with long-term collaborator Sam Sharples, bring a taste of the stories from Coastal Kent in the First World War alive. Working closely with the Screen South Kent in WW1 research team, led by Darrienne Price, the film is supported by local people and their families who have allowed us to reflect on some very personal stories echoing down the century.
Local heritage groups and organisations have been very generous in opening up their archive and giving us their time to discuss the unique contribution played by Kent communities. We are also grateful to the Imperial War Museum for their support on archive moving image research and inclusion.
Screen South would like to thank all those involved in the making of this film, something which we are very proud of, and we hope that you too will enjoy and appreciate the film’s significance in telling the stories of Kent in WW1. For more stories from WW1, visit the http://kentww1.com/ website.
