Books, Gift Vouchers and DVD

‘Hannah Frank – The Spark Divine’, takes its title from a compliment the artist noted in her diary on Wednesday 10 July 1929: “A letter from Sidney Needoff …thanking me for the poems which would surely feature in the first issue – I had the spark divine”.

Award winning filmmaker Sarah Thomas said “I could not have made this film if I had not been deeply moved by Hannah’s artwork, and I hope through all the material surrounding the centenary celebration others will be too”.

In this film Hannah Frank talks about how her Jewishness affected her art and the reasons why she chose to draw and sculpt women above all. We meet Hannah Frank as a poet as well as an artist and she discusses how her drawings were influenced by romantic poetry, and the poetry of the bible. The “young Hannah Frank” is played by her great-niece, Jen Rankin; and the “voice of the young Hannah Frank”, reading diary entries from the 1920s, is played by another great-niece, Barbara Spevack.
