Documentary | English| 72mins | Esther Johnson

Available 1 March – 30 April

Making its online debut on YourScreen,  Asunder tells the story of what happened to an English town during the First World War, with almost all of its men abroad fighting and its women and children left behind. The North East was in the front line, thanks to its shipyards and munitions factories. Using archive and contemporary footage and audio, Asunder collages the stories of people from Tyneside and Wearside to uncover what life was like on the home front, with bombs falling on Britain for the first time, conscientious objectors sentenced to death, and women working as doctors, tram conductors and footballers. The narration for the film is voiced by journalist Kate Adie, with the actor Alun Armstrong as the voice of the Sunderland Daily Echo and Shipping Gazette

Asunder is Co-commissioned by Sunderland Cultural Partnership and 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions

Asunder is a powerful fusion of the historical with the contemporary, a lyrical work that lingers long in the imagination” – Morning Star.
