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.

A Matter of Life and Death (1946) Monday, October 23, 6pm

Intended to smooth tensions between WWII allies Britain and the U.S., this surreal film goes beyond its wartime themes. Using amazing images and powerful emotions, Powell and Pressburger make their case for the transcendent value of love. Eye popping pre-CGI special effects. Also marketed under the title, Stairway to Heaven.

1 hr. 44 mins. Not rated.
