Humphrey Jennings and the British documentary film movement 1930–46

21-Sep-2020 @ 8:00 pm

Talk by Carol Harris. Today, few people know the name of Humphrey Jennings, but anyone who ever watched a documentary about Britain in WW2 will have seen the Spitfire roaring over the cornfield, and the young woman singing as she works in a war factory. These and other classic Jennings images mould ideas and memories of that time. In this talk, Carol Harris will look at Jennings’ life and legacy, with extracts from his films, and his own writings as well as the memories of those he worked with.

Zoom meeting details will be made available to members via our monthly e-mail news updates.
