Distribution deal for Davies documentary
ON the day of
its world premiere in Cannes, Of Time and the City, Terence Davies’
new feature length documentary, has been acquired for UK
distribution by the BFI, with international sales being handled by
Of Time and the City offers a deeply personal evocation of Davies’
life as a Liverpudlian and a moving account of the changes in
British social life through the post-war period. The story is told
through a rich montage of archival footage which reveals both the
extraordinary physical changes to the fabric of the city and the
emotional lives of its inhabitants.
The film was produced by Northwest Vision and Media as part of its
Departures’ initiative, a competitive scheme which has supported
three feature projects for Liverpool’s year as European Capital of
Culture. Production credits are shared with the Liverpool Culture
Company, the UK Film Council and the BBC. Following its screening at
Cannes, the film will show at the Edinburgh International Film
Festival in June, with a Liverpool premiere in October. It will be
released by the BFI to cinemas nationwide in the UK in November,
followed by a release on BFI DVD.
Jane Giles, Head of Content Development at the BFI, said:-

Letters to the editor:- "Box left on street."
"WITH all the
terror alerts over the last few years, I was shocked to see some
silly person who left a box on top of the pillbox by the War
Memorial in Southport. What shocked me further was the fact that no
one asked why it was left unattended in such an odd place. This, I
feel, was a result of someone who was lazy and did not want to queue
in the post office to post it. This could have caused a large
panic and huge disruption. Luckily, this was not the case and when I
came back for the third time, about 15 minutes later, it had been
removed. If it hadn’t, I would have told the post office."
Mrs S. Greenwood.
Editor’s note:- "I was informed about this box as well. The
Post Office were surprised to find it out there as well. I
agree that the person who left it was amazingly silly to have not
considered the current climate we live in."
