Of Time and the City


About this object

Of Time and the City is a 2008 documentary film directed, written, and narrated by gay Liverpool-born director Terence Davies recalling the Liverpool of his youth in the 1950s and 60s. The film uses news reel archive footage of Liverpool, contemporary shots, poetry and prose to tell the story of Liverpool from the close of the Second World War as Terence Davies personally remembers it. The film explores, like many of his other works, what it means to be Liverpudlian as well as touching on what it means to be Catholic and to be gay.

The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and won Best Documentary in the Australian Film Critics Association awards in 2009.
