The Violet Hour

4 minutes – 2002 – short animation

The Violet Hour explores the transformative impact of World War I through the narrative of the tea gown, a garment worn by women whilst receiving their female friends for tea. The title of the film is taken from T.S Eliot’s The Waste Land (1922) and refers to the cusp of morning to evening, known also as the golden hour. Violets are also a symbol of mourning for all the lives lost in the impending war. The film portrays a woman dressed in a tea gown in the drawing room, and also explores a real tea gown from the Brighton Museum.
