Of Time and the City

"This is the most poignant, beautiful, entrancing British film of the year" Empire, (2008)

Made in 2008, Of Time and the City is a gently melancholy visual poem in which director Terence Davies shares deeply personal musings on his relationship with Liverpool, the city where he was born and where he spent his first 28 years. Composed largely of atmospheric archive footage culled from, among others, British Pathé, the BBC, British Movietone News and Granada, and accented with Davies’s lyrical narration, it’s both a celebration and a eulogy for an iconic city.
