On Tuesday 7th December the Shetland Film Club will be showing Of Time and the City at the NAFC Marine Centre at 7:30pm. Mark Kermode’s favourite film of 2008, which he describes as “at once heartbreaking and hilarious, with Davies’ gorgeously ripe narration rolling like heady wine around a half-filled glass, this life affirming memoir….grows more wonderful with each viewing.” The film invites the audience to meditate along with the director on what has become of Liverpool, his home town, since the end of World War Two. Davies blends archive footage, music, poetry, philosophy and his own thoughts and memories into a 72 minute eulogy to the city and its inhabitants that is intensely moving and thought-provoking. Of Time and the City has received massive critical acclaim. It is a treat for any cinema-lover, but for anyone who has roots or history in the North of England it is simply unmissable. The film carries a ‘12A’ certificate. Tickets cost £4.50 (£3.50 concessions) and are available at the door.
This screening is part of the ‘Power of Place’, Shetland’s year long celebration of architecture and place.
