Of Time And The City

Both a love song and a eulogy to the city of Liverpool, this film is a response to memory, reflection and the experience of losing a sense of place as the skyline changes and time takes its toll. Terence Davies returns to his native Liverpool and to his filmmaking roots, capturing a sense of the city today and its influences on him growing up in the late post-war years. A glorious evocation of his childhood and a poetic account of the city’s near-Dickensian spirit, now all but vanished. Liverpool’s phoenix-like rise is portrayed like never before, showing how a city can change itself and the people under its influence. His stance vis-à-vis urban cultural conservation is eloquently expressed in often surprising juxtapositions of imagery and sound. Directed by Terence Davies. Produced by Sol Papadopoulos and Roy Boulter.
