Writing the Missing – Folding Water: Film Premiere image

Part of Durham Book Festival
Following the success of Durham Book Festival- commissioned films Writing the Missing – The River Cycle and Writing the Missing – All At Sea, Lisette Auton and Rob Irish come together for the final time in the Water Trilogy to push the creative boundaries of access, words and kindness.
Across time and water, in beautiful and startling words, soundscapes and images, award-winning disabled activist, writer and performer Lisette Auton weaves together character and setting to provoke debate and action. Lisette asks why she is still folding herself into the impossible. And what would happen if she finally said no?
Watch the premiere of Writing the Missing – Folding Water, followed by Lisette Auton in discussion with New Writing North’s Chief Executive Claire Malcolm.
This event will be captioned and BSL interpreted.
Content warning: this film contains a scene (at approximately 11 – 15 mins) alluding to drowning, and upsetting facts about the treatment of disabled people.
