Directed by Tim Curtis (Life on the Deben) 54 mins.
A major drama-documentary film based on true stories of Suffolk’s First World War, it dramatises stories of love and sacrifice, following the lives of Suffolk people during WW1. The film recounts the true lifechanging experiences at the Western Front of Stanley Banyard, a farm hand from Ramsholt and how he saved the lives of his comrades, lost in no-man’s land, using skills learnt as a boy from a Suffolk gamekeeper.
“Stanley’s War is a riveting and heartfelt story of two Suffolk families from two very different backgrounds and their harrowing experiences of World War One.
A powerful documentary from Tim Curtis (Life On The Deben) Not to be missed!”
