Discussion with Terence Davies

Some films beg unpacking, none more than Davies’s remarkable Distant Voices, Still Lives, a beautifully rendered trip through the past with baggage galore. Davies’s most notable achievement is a seamless style of storytelling where memories meld into a singular realm and emotional connections create the logic that guides us. Join Terence Davies for a nuanced trip down memory lane.
