Unravelling is a film which will take you on a searching, evocative journey of public war memorials in London and Coventry, the poppy factory and Coventry Cathedral, to reflect on the way that ex-colonial soldiers are remembered or left behind.
The film is based on a poetic intergenerational dialogue about the experiences of war, between Sawarn Singh - a veteran soldier of the Second World War who fought in Burma, the Middle East and Africa before moving to Coventry - and his grandson Kuldip Powar, the director of the film. Little-known archival film material has been projected onto well-known local and national monuments, and combined with a haunting original score by internationally acclaimed composer Nitin Sawhney.
Times: Screenings from 11.00am - 4.00pm
