“Things I know about this film: it will be a startlingly beautiful lyrical essay, mesmeric, with a thread of the dark and political, truth that bites. It will be audio described, captioned, and BSL interpreted. Roaring surges of anger, laughter and tears are to be anticipated. Expect the sea, a purple stick, care, access, disability and neurodiversity.”
Writing the Missing – All at Sea is a new film commissioned for Durham Book Festival, following the success of Writing the Missing – A River Cycle which premiered in 2020. Director, writer, producer and performer Lisette Auton joins forces once more with filmmaker and editor Rob Irish, to push the creative boundaries of access, words and kindness.
