Asunder: Cultural Commemoration for Battle of the Somme

An ambitious film and music event is taking place at Sunderland Empire to commemorate the Battle of the Somme one hundred years ago. The event will explore the legacy of one of the most disastrous battles in military history, through the prism of a single city – Sunderland.

See the premiere of this new film by award-winning filmmaker Esther Johnson with live score by Field Music and Warm Digits, performed live with Royal Northern Sinfonia.

Guided by music writer, film producer, curator and member of best-selling pop band Saint Etienne, Bob Stanley, Asunder tells the story of the city’s involvement in the Battle of the Somme through largely unknown personal experiences.
