VIDEO: The Story of a Tear

As part of her work on the history and meaning of tears and water at the Centre for the History of the Emotions in 2013-14, Leverhulme Artist in Residence Clare Whistler worked with film-maker David Wright to create this film, ‘The Story of a Tear’, in response to the Jewish Cemetery at the heart of Queen Mary’s Mile End Campus. The film features a new composition by Kerry Andrew, which sets to music words from the poetry of George Herbert.
