War Child: Meditating on an archive
War Child, conceived by Dr Teresa Murjas of the department of Film, Theatre and Television, is a digital project about the Evacuee Archive held by the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL).
War Child is a story about the Evacuee Archive: how it came into being, the man who created it and what he has experienced. War Child engages with and documents the life of this archive, to lyrically evoke its qualities and – virtually – extend its scope.
