Terence Davies


In anticipation of ‘Sunset Song’, which arrives in UK cinemas on December 4th, I have decided to look back at the movies of its legendary Liverpudlian director Terence Davies. Davies has married classicism, experimentalism and semi-autobiographical storytelling into a wholly singular vision over his four decades of filmmaking. Our season hopes to celebrate it all – from his early collection of short films made between 1976 and 1984 to his most recent feature, the long-awaited adaptation of one of Scotland’s most revered novels. It aims to praise the work of a distinctive artist among the finest film directors ever produced on our shores.
