Realscreen has secured the first trailer for Kim Longinotto’s all-archive documentary Love is All.

The 70-minute film, which had its world premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June, explores love and courtship on screen in the 20th Century, and is composed entire of archival footage secured from the British Film Institute (BFI), the Yorkshire Film Archive, and other sources.

The film is scored by Richard Hawley, was coproduced by Heather Croall, and was edited by Longinotto and collaborator Ollie Huddleston. UK distributor Dogwoof picked up international rights for the doc last week, and further release plans are in the works.

In a statement, Longinotto said: “Love is All is a celebration of the changes in our lives in the UK from 1898 to 2014. The film really broadens the idea of love, by looking at our changes in attitudes to subjects such as multiculturalism and same sex relationships.

“The film explores love in a playful way though; you can’t have an angry film with a Richard Hawley soundtrack.”
