The Blue from Heaven

We are thrilled to announce that we will be screening Professor Suzie Hanna’s animated film of Stevie Smith’s poem “The Blue from Heaven” at the ReLit Summer School 2018! The film features Stevie Smith’s own drawings as the basis of the animated scenes.

Suzie joined us at the Summer School last year, to lead a session on the process of animating Smith’s drawings. We’re so excited to see the finished product!
