About Made In England: The Films Of Powell & Pressburger

Directed by BAFTA winning filmmaker David Hinton, Made I, England is Martin Scorsese’s personal and moving look at two of British cinema’s greatest filmmakers.

Producing, writing, and directing, Powell and Pressburger created some of the great classics of the British golden age, including The Red Shoes, Black Narcissus, A Matter of Life and Death and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. Scorsese takes the audience on a very personal journey as we hear how they helped shape his own filmmaking and how a later friendship with Michael Powell left an indelible mark on his own life.

Brought to life with a treasure trove of rare archival material from the personal collections of Powell, Pressburger and Scorsese, the story is told using diaries, audio recordings, home movies and personal snapshots.
