Powell and Pressburger’s most imaginative Technicolor foray into wartime cinema. Airman Peter Carter’s (David Niven’s) should be dead, but a Heavenly messenger fails to claim him. A celestial court must now decide his Fate.
Screening as part of Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell + Pressburger, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
Event/ Ian Christie, film historian and Powell-Pressburger expert, will introduce this screening and lead a post-film discussion.
