English poet Herbert Read was born in North Yorkshire and after serving in the 1st World War he became an influential art critic, author, anarchist and co-founder of the ICA in London. This new film is an immersive portrayal of his life and work, reflecting on how his ideas can be applied to contemporary society today. Interviews with artists, curators, historians and peers are combined with archival material, poetry and scenes of the Yorkshire landscape.
