Of Time And The City

Of Time And The City Release Date: January 21, 2009

From the original voice of the great British auteur, Terence Davies, comes a visual poem which draws upon the first 28 years of the director’s life in Liverpool until he left in 1973. “Cut it as if it were fiction,” Davies says, with “images which speak” and a layered sound track of popular and classical music, voices, radio clips and a powerful, poignant voiceover by Terence Davies. “Of Time And The City” is a very personal portrait of Liverpool, beyond its Beatles and its football clubs, the home of the writer’s birth, where youth and inspiration weave his own story into the recent history of the City with fascinating found footage and counterpointed sound.

The movie “Of Time And The City” was an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival 2008 and the Toronto International Film Festival 2008.
