(UN)WRITTEN (UN)HEARD

Dorothy Lawrence had a tragic beginning and a tragic end. But somewhere in the middle she achieved the unthinkable. She defied the patriarchy, snubbed the War Office, and became the only British woman soldier to serve on the front line in the Great War.

Her place in history should have been secured, but she was silenced and forgotten. Until now.

Director's notes

We cannot give Dorothy back her voice, here we try to tell the parts of her story we do know, and share the courage, resilience, and fight this hero had.
