The Evacuation Video - short version
'The Evacuation' is a short extract from a 70 minute film in four sections which tells the story of a cluster of rural Devon villages where life is about to change drastically when preparations for war reach this relatively cut-off part of the country. Told in the words of seven local residents who were children at the time and mixing in photographs and previously unseen archive footage, the story starts with life before the war without electricity and piped water. Then one day the talk in the local village shop is of the area needing to be evacuated for military exercises, preparations for D-Day. The production was put together by local film-maker Ian Phillips and funded by the Slapton Line Partnership, South Devon AONB and The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development : Europe investing in rural areas'.
The full film is shown regularly in the South Hams area, see press for details. If you would like to put a local showing of the film on please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
