Editorial Reviews

THE COMPLETE HUMPHREY JENNINGS VOLUME 2: FIRES WERE STARTED (DVD & Blu-ray) Films by Humphrey Jennings 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 show Jennings as 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 poet 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 this set offer a lyrical portrait of the nation at war and a moving celebration of Britishness. Volume 2 includes the following films: The Heart of Britain (1941) Words for Battle (1941) Listen to Britain (1941) Fires Were Started (1943) The Silent Village (1943) Special features Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition This is England (1941, 10 mins): alternative cut of The Heart of Britain I Was a Fireman (1943, 74 mins): Jennings original cut of Fires Were Started Illustrated booklet featuring essays, film notes and biographies by Lindsay Anderson, Patrick Russell and Kevin Jackson UK | 1941 1943 | black & white | English language, with optional hard-of-hearing subtitles | 138 minutes | Original aspect ratio 1.33:1 Disc 1: BD50 | 1080p | 24fps | PCM mono 2.0 audio (48k/24-bit) Disc 2: DVD9 | PAL | Dolby Digital mono 2.0 audio (320kbps) Region 0 PAL DVD All Region Blu-ray
