The Luminaries: Powell & Pressburger

Join us as we mark our 80th year by celebrating the careers and the impact made by some of the world’s greatest filmmakers. 

The British filmmaking partnership of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger were the most creative partnership in British cinema – possibly in the world. They made films like nobody else has, before or since, each one unique in subject but always distinctly Powell and Pressburger. 

Their collaboration lasted some fifteen years and the films continue to amaze and influence filmmakers today, including the likes of Spielberg, Scorsese and Tarantino.

This season has now ended.
