Of Time and the City

In a gently melancholy visual poem, 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.
