About the Event
Terrence Davies casts an unapologetically myth-making eye over his own adolescence in working class wartime Liverpool. We glide through tangles of family memories to recover joys and horrors, with the singing of pop tunes and shanties in homes and bars standing in for unspeakable intimacies. Arguably the under-recognized high point of British art cinema, this masterpiece stands as one of the most unprecedented and never-repeated films ever made, and a testament to what we have lost cinematically ever since. Screening Thursday, July 8th at 8pm Cocktail hour at 7pm!
