During the 1940s, British filmmaking duo of Powell and Pressburger released a group of films that secured their reputation as masters of the art. In this series we’ll watch four of their best. Distinctively different from other movies of this period, they represent arguably the finest ever made in Great Britain. Each film is introduced by area cinephile Ann Glenn with info about the film’s production, actors and a post-screening Q&A session.\

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943) 

Winston Churchill tried to stop the production of this film, made at the height of WWII. Filmed in rich technicolor, featuring stand out performances, the film chronicles the personal and professional journey of a British officer–from the early years of the 20th century through WWII. Haunting and deeply moving.  2hr. 43 mins., Not rated.
