Of Time and the City
Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.
British director Terence Davies's latest film is a hauntingly evocative essay-poem on the history of his home city—Liverpool, England. The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw calls the films "miraculous."
Funny, romantic, and bitingly cynical by turns, the film blends archival footage from the city's days as an industrial hub with contemporary footage of Davies visiting childhood haunts, all tied together by his voiceover reminiscences. Davies's best-known works include such acclaimed films as The Long Day Closes and The House of Mirth. (77 mins., video)
