Details

Widely celebrated as one of Britain’s greatest filmmakers, Humphrey Jennings is a true poet of the cinema, and his work was the inspiration for Danny Boyle’s Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. This, the last of three comprehensive volumes which bring together his entire directorial output, features the films he made between 1944 and 1951, and charts his transition from wartime to peacetime filmmaking.

Featuring A Diary for Timothy, Jennings’s much-loved collaboration with EM Forster, The Dim Little Island, a muted but affecting celebration of Britishness, and Family Portrait, the esoteric Festival of Britain film, this essential collection confirms Jennings as a master of the cinematic art.

This compilation includes:

  • The True Story of Lili Marlene (1944)
  • The Eighty Days (1944)
  • Myra Hess (1945)
  • A Diary for Timothy (1945)
  • A Defeated People (1946)
  • The Cumberland Story (1947)
  • The Dim Little Island (1949)
  • Family Portrait (1950)
