War Work: 8 Songs with Film

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A song cycle with texts written by World War I poets all of whom, apart from the English painter-poet David Bomberg, lost their lives during the war... This innovative song cycle combines chansons vieilles from European poets, archival visual excerpts, and fragments of World World I-era musical motifs, in which Michael Nyman evokes everything erased from our memory: the unknown soldiers - those who have never been found or have lost their lives.
