On the build up to another installation at the Imperial War Museum North, thought it's a good time to get an airing of our making of film from the last venture.

After a bit of a mission tackling the ups and downs of shooting and editing a film across twenty-odd screens, the second instalment from Soup Collective's ongoing work with the Imperial War Museum North is now live. Done in collaboration with English and Co. the film follows the correspondence between Claire Davies-Griffith, a Major in the TA, and her family, during the time she spent as a nurse in Afghanistan. Set to a soundtrack kindly provided by PJ Harvey, the film focuses on the different narratives within the family, using the multi-screen setup to offer varied viewpoints.

The show runs at 1.30pm and 4.00pm everyday in the museum's main space, with Soup's first film, 'Al-Mutanabbi St - A Reaction', playing at 1.00pm and 4.30pm. Should you happen down the Quays way, then do pop in!
