Widely considered one of Britain’s greatest filmmakers, Humphrey Jennings has long been celebrated as one of cinema's true poets. This, the second of three volumes which brings together his entire directorial output, features five films made between 1941-1943 which shows Jennings at the peak of his tragically short but outstanding career. From the rousing call to arms of The Heart of Britain and Words for Battle to the the poetic evocation of daily life in Listen to Britain, and the powerfully resonating drama of Fires Were Started and The Silent Village, the films included in the set offer a lyrical portrait of the nation at war and a moving celebration of Britishness.
