Narrated and presented by the man himself, Made In England: The Films Of Powell & Pressburger is a moving look at two of British cinema’s most influential filmmakers and their works which defined much of 50s cinema. Now in cinemas, this release comes after rave reviews at the Berlin International Film Festival and Dublin International Film Festival – where it nabbed a win for best documentary.
