Of Time and the City


Of Time and the City

Of Time and the City

Terence Davies’s new film about postwar Liverpool, Of Time and the City, is out nationwide now. We would love to know if Terence Davies’s memories chime with your own, or, if you’re too young to remember the fifties and sixties, whether his film surprises you in any way. The film features a lot of music, much of it classical but some of it from Merseybeat and other popstars of the fifties and sixties. It also features a lot of film of the overhead railway, days out at New Brighton and the old streets of central and North Liverpool – and the tower blocks that replaced these. There’s also a lot about the Catholic Church, reflecting Davies’s own Catholic upbringing – and his later rejection of religion. Check out the Of Time and the City website for more details.
