The Humphrey Jennings Film Reader

Front Cover
Carcanet, 1993 - Arts - 312 pages
Humphrey Jennings (1907-1950) has long been recognised as one of Britain's greatest film directors. His studies of national life, and particularly his three wartime films Listen to Britain, Fires Were Started and A Diary for Timothy, invaluable documents of their times, remain among the highest achievements of world cinema - humane, innovative and poetic. Jennings's films are rich due to the drama of subject matter and the range of passions and skills he brought to his work.
