  • From the director of HERE presented at Venice Gap-Financing Market


Part artwork, part documentary, NOTHING TO BE WRITTEN tells the stories behind ‘field postcards’ one of the few communication options WWI soldiers had with their families. Nothing was to be written on them, communication was only allowed through the prescribed phrases. Moving, haunting and emotive, an award-winning exploration of the human stories beyond the edges of the postcards set to an original score by composer Anna Meredith, commissioned by the BBC VR Hub and created by 59 Productions.
