Documentary All My Life's Buried Here is being shown at the Curzon followed by a live question and answer with the film's director Stewart Morgan Hajdukiewicz.

It will, for the first time on film, tell the remarkable story of British composer George Butterworth, who died in 1916 fighting during World War One.

Drawing on newly uncovered archival treasures, including the letters and memoirs of those who knew him best, the documentary is the compelling account of a pioneering British composer, musician, folk song collector and dancer.

Butterworth was cut down in his prime on the battlefield of the Somme.

Butterworth collected folk songs in North Somerset prior to 1914 and his mother, Julia, came from Portishead and is buried at the town's St Peter's Church - which features in the film.

Many of Cecil Sharp's rare and stunning photographic portraits of folk singers from pre-1914 Somerset feature in the film, as it was such a rich area for the collection of traditional music in those music.

All My Life's Buried Here is at the Curzon cinema, in Old Street, on June 23 at 1.30pm.

Tickets, priced £5-21, is available at www.curzon.org.uk or from the box office on 01275 871000.
