Description

Details

Terence Davies’ film, depicting life in working-class Liverpool from the 1940s into the 50s, is 30 years old this year, and already a modern classic.

Now that Eileen, Maisie, and Tony are adults, their childhood memories – and in particular those associated with their father – are inconsistent. While Eileen clings to happier times, her siblings remember his brutal violent nature, which has been a major influence on their growth and development. This troubled family must deal with the day-to-day alongside their past. Terence Davies creates a loving portrait with this partly autobiographical tale (shot in two sections), and it was voted one of the greatest British films by Sight & Sound.

Distant Voices Still Lives has been restored in 4K resolution by the BFI under the supervision and approval of director Terence Davies.
