Medieval books of hours were a collection of exquisitely hand-illustrated religious readings and accompanying images. They were created in a handy size so they could be carried by the owner and read on a daily basis. They can also be seen as interactive texts as these books were not intended to be read chronologically.
All the films have been made in collaboration between Lucy English, a poet, and film makers from all round the world.
Lucy English is a spoken word poet and novelist.Lucy has toured widely in the UK and the US. With the South West Collective she co-wrote Flash, a multi media spoken word show, which toured the UK in 2010-11 and also Count Me In, which toured from 2014-5.
