Out of Chaos – A Documentary

Acclaimed documentary director Jill Craigie’s enlightening account of the role of art in WWII is something of a filmic mural. From Henry Moore’s drawings of the London Underground during bombing raids to Stanley Spencer’s evocative shipbuilding panels, via Evelyn Dunbar’s depiction of land girls, all the big names in the 1940s art world make an appearance in this film. Paul Nash is shown at work in Oxford’s Cowley Dump, making sketches for his WWII masterpiece Totes Meer.
