A Matter of Life and Death: The Imaginations of Powell and Pressburger

Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
Cast: David Niven, Kim Hunter, Robert Coote
104mins   1947   UK   U   English   

Part of The Imaginations of Powell & Pressburger season at Depot. Introduced by Depot’s Box Officer Manager, Susan Dadak.

When RAF pilot Peter Carter plummets towards the English Channel, confiding his last thoughts to an American army radio operator, a fantastical series of events see him conducted to a celestial court to plead for his life.

Pressburger’s wildly imaginative script is matched by Powell’s stunning visuals in this timeless classic.
