A collection of 11 classic British films from influential filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Films from the 1940s onwards reflecting the times and the passing world incidental to the stories they recount. We see Britain as it was before and during the Second World War and the art of film making is shown at its finest.
