Aftermath

2016 (United Kingdom) - Layla Atkinson - Animation / Literature / Narrative Fiction / Poetry / Short Film / War

Siegfried Sassoon wrote the poem “Aftermath” in 1919 shortly after he was de-mobilised. He had come to despise war and feared that most of us would forget it's horrors. “Aftermath” was broadcast on every Armistice Day for many years after the war. This film is set in 1927 and explores one character's reaction as he hears one of these broadcasts.
