Jul 31 - Dec 2, 2018
2016 Foundling Fellow, Lily Cole, has created a film to mark the 200th anniversary of Emily Brontė’s birth. On display at the Foundling Museum, Cole’s film takes as its starting point Heathcliff, the foundling character central to Wuthering Heights, and explores links between the Foundling Hospital story and Brontė’s much-loved novel. Co-commissioned by the Foundling Museum, Brontė Parsonage Museum and Rapid Response Unit, with funding from Arts Council England.
