Meet filmmaker Esther Johnson and creative producer Bob Stanley (Saint Etienne) for a special screening of their film Asunder, a major commemorative WW1 centenary poetic documentary film that weaves the largely untold stories of individuals from the north east to uncover what life was like on the home front and Western front. 

Esther Johnson’s film uses local archive footage to convey the story of the city’s involvement in the First World War, from the men who fought in the fields to those who stayed behind to work in the region’s shipyards and munitions factories. The soundtrack to the film was created by two renowned North East bands, Sunderland’s Field Music and Newcastle’s Warm Digits.

The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with Esther Johnson and Bob Stanley. 

Asunder originally premired in Sunderland in 2016 to great acclaim. It recently won the Journal Culture Award for 'Best Event Sunderland'.

Asunder is co-commissioned by 
Sunderland Cultural Partnership and 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Sunderland Business Improvement District, Culture Bridge North East and Sir James Knott Trust.
