Terence Davies is one of the most distinctive film-makers currently working in the UK. His recent ‘documentary-poem’, ‘Of Time and the City’, met with tremendous success when it was shown in Cannes and film festivals around the world in 2008. His earlier features – ‘Trilogy’,’Distant Voices, Still Lives’ and ‘The Long Day Closes’ – commonly explore his upbringing in working-class Liverpool combining violence with fragile beauty. He also adapted ‘The Neon Bible’ and Edith Wharton’s ‘The House of Mirth’ (starring Gillian Anderson) for film. He is currently involved in shooting his latest feature ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ with Rachel Weisz and Simon Russell Beale. Terence will be discussing, amongst many things, his influences, his special engagement with Liverpool, the role of ‘pastness’ in his films, as well as his training as a director.
