UK | 1943 | dir.s Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger, with Roger Livesey, Anton Walbrook, Deborah Kerr, John Laurie | new print

Lampooning Britain’s complacent military establishment, Powell and Pressburger created an intimate national epic that ranges from the Boer War to WW2 telling a delicate story of loves lost and found. Now magnificently restored under the guidance of Thelma Schoonmaker and one of its greatest admirers, Martin Scorsese.

Preceded by Powell and Pressburger: The Matter of Britain, a free lecture by Prof. Ian Christie at 6pm, in partnership with Gresham College.
