Film screening and Q & A

Sat 23 Nov 2013

11.30am Free

Time Bleeds is an experimental documentary shot in Folkestone in Kent, which was previously the gateway to the First World War for over 8 million troops and lies at the heart of this documentary. The historical importance of Folkestone led to a group of people coming together in February 2013with one question in mind "What if we forget?".

A hundred years on, the First World War is moving out of living memory. What does that mean for us? Could anything like it happen again? During this experimental documentary the participants were taken back to WW1 through a series of method acting workshops to answer these questions.

Don't miss: Lachrymose performance at 2pm and 3.30pm.
