The Masters  
The Powell & Pressburger Pages

Dedicated to the work of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and all the other people, both actors and technicians who helped them make those wonderful films.

A lot of the documents have been sent to me or have come from other web sites. The name of the web site is given where known. If I have unintentionally included an image or document that is copyrighted or that I shouldn't have done then please email me and I'll remove it.

I make no money from this site, it's purely for the love of the films.

AMOLAD & BN at the Curzon, Soho
Lou Volpe tells us:
For those of you in and around London, the Curzon Soho is showing AMOLAD & BN on Sunday 27th October. On top of their Blimp screening a month ago (at ear splitting volume!) they seem to have taken over where the NFT shamefully left off.

AMOLAD + Ian Christie in York
Ian Christie is giving a lecture on "Imagining Heaven" and there will be a screening of AMOLAD at the York City Screen.

It's a plenary session, starting at 5pm, as part of the conference The Social Context of Death Dying and Disposal. at York University. I'm in email contact with the organiser, Dr Julie Rugg, and we'll try to sort out the details (places available, if it's necessary to book, any costs etc)

I didn't manage to sort this out because of my burst appendix.
Ian Christie reports:

York went quite well, thanks. The cinema hadn't publicised it, treating it like a private hire, so I had about 120 conferees from 'Death, Dying and Disposal' - a cheery lot, it it transpired, who were mugh interested in imagining the afterlife. The oddest thing was that about 100 had never seen the film, and it was a fine screening, so they had a real treat.

Powell and Pressburger festival, Vancouver, Canada

Katie Yu reports:

Yay! The Pacific Cinematheque, an arthouse theatre, is having a Powell and Pressburger festival from May 31st-June 23rd. They're showing new 35mm prints of The Edge of the World, TRS, ToB, ACT, Colonel Blimp, BN, IKWIG, AMOLAD, The Spy in Black, 49P, The Battle of the River Plate, Ill Met by Moonlight, and Peeping Tom. (sorry, not very good with the acronyms yet). That's 13 films they're showing twice.

I was so annoyed when I missed it a few years ago that you can bet I'll be there for all of them this time. I guess I won't be seeing any daylight for the month of June :)

If anyone's interested and in the general vicinity of Vancouver, Canada please join me!


See Pacific Cinematheque for full programme.
