5 - 28 December

Charles Barr has sent me the IFI December programme which includes part 2 of the Powell & Pressburger season he's running there:

The first half of the season traced the formation of the Powell-Pressburger partnership and its triumphant development up to 1946. This second half is like a mirror image, moving from new triumphs to struggles to separation.

In retrospect, the trajectory seems inevitable, given the recurring crises of the British cinema to which they remained loyal; the films themselves, shot in sumptuous colour, remain uniformly innovative and fascinating. They showcase the talents not only of .P and P. but of .C and C., two great directors of photography in Jack Cardiff and Christopher Challis, responsible between them for the first five of this sextet. As always, the contrast between Hitchcock and Powell, colleagues briefly in youth, is striking. Where Hitchcock liked to hug credit to himself, Powell was always ready to acknowledge a full range of collaborators. No director has ever been as generous, and realistic, as he was in insisting on equal screen credit for his scriptwriting partner.

Introduction and notes on individual films by Charles Barr.

6 - 30 November
Charles Barr tells us:

The Irish Film Institute did go ahead with the season - part 1 is happening this month. As usual, they were very last-minute doing the confirmations; and because of the illness, apparently, of the main IT man, they have still not got the full season up properly on the website, which is frustrating.

Normally the home page would foreground the season, and offer direct links to click on to. However, you can click on to the image of the Programme booklet for November, and spool down, and find the relevant pages (15-17). So maybe you can get some details on to your own site.

Your point about Powell's Irish connections is a good one that I plan to say something about in the intro to part 2 of the season. Next month I hope.

Date Time Film
6 Nov 15:00 The Edge of the World
7 Nov 14:30 The Spy in Black

Barbara Siek tells us:

I couldn't stand it that the doc on Jack was only showing in California and New York, so I wrote to Craig McCall and asked (begged!) him to consider screening it for the Midwest in Chicago either at the Gene Siskel Film Center or at the International Film Festival in the fall. I had no hope, but I had to ask.

Well, there is a God. Craig just answered and said that he would screen Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff at the International Film Festival that runs in Chicago from 7-21 October. The screening hasn't been advertised and no date and time are set yet, but the schedule will be posted 22 September, or perhaps earlier at www.jackcardiff.com.

Update: Times are set as:
15th Oct at 4pm
17th Oct at 1:30pm


15 - 17 October
Robert Beveridge tells us:

Plans are now well advanced for the IKWIG reunion/celebration weekend in October. It seems like only yesterday since we met... anyhow the weekend is 15th - 17th October and a trip to Corryvreckan is going to be one of the highlights.

On Saturday 16th we will be picked up at the pier at Lochbuie at 1330 and taken round to Carsaig for a look at the pier there (alas just from the sea but in close) and then out to the whirlpool. There are other weekends when the pool is more roaring but not when we can be at the hotel.

So hopefully you will make it and booking details etc from the hotel and they will alert you to the booking conditions/advice for the boat trip which includes the need for everyone to bring warm clothing!

Steve adds:

Even at its most roaring and fiercest, the whirlpools are never really as fierce as they are on the film so don't worry everyone, there's no risk of being sucked down to Davy Jones' locker, even if the engine fails on the boat :)

There will be plenty of other visits to the iconic locations used in the film and of course we'll be staying in The Western Isles Hotel. They're doing a special rate for the weekend but if that's too much for you then there are other places to stay on Mull and you can join us each day. But do please let us know because there will be some things arranged in the Hotel itself in the evenings.

The web site for the Western Isles shows all rooms for that weekend as unavailable for booking on line. But if you call them on +44 (0) 1688 302 012 and say you want to be there for this IKWIG weekend then they will let you book.

They are putting together some special pages about the event at http://www.westernisleshotel.co.uk/IKWIG.asp.

It has been known to rain occasionally on Mull, especially in October. But at least the dreaded Highland midges aren't much of a problem at that time of year. Bring suitable clothing that can stand it being a bit wet & windy, even a bit foggy and cold. Bring a stout pair of shoes for the walking that we'll be doing but most of all, bring yourselves.


14, 17 & 19 October

Each film is free to attend will be shown in the Budarz Theater located in the Ossining Public Library located at 53 Croton Avenue in Ossining, New York.

On Wednesday, September 15, at 7:00pm, the library presents the 1945 film, I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING, starring Joan Webster, as a young middle-class Englishwoman who is determined to have the finer things in life, and to that end she plans to marry Sir Robert Bellinger, a wealthy, middle-aged industrialist whom she does not love. En route to the mythical Island of Killoran, where her future husband resides, Joan is stranded on the nearby island of Mull. Inclement weather keeps her grounded for a week, during which time she falls in love with young naval officer Torquil McNeil. Ignoring the dictates of her heart (not to mention common sense), Joan stubbornly insists upon heading out to sea towards her marriage of convenience, but the rath of Mother Nature finally convinces her that her future resides on Mull.
Or that's how they put it at

Amy Dickinson opens "Local Favorites" series May 27

We are proud to announce "Local Favorites", a new monthly series that will provide a venue for some of the most fascinating members of the Ithaca community to share their love of film with our audience. Each month, local leaders from all walks of life will be invited to reveal a more personal side of themselves by choosing one of their all-time favorite movies to present on the big screen. Our special guests will introduce their film and lead a brief discussion following the show. It.s all about the power of fine film to inspire, provoke, and bring people together.

On Thursday May 27 at 7:00 pm, Amy Dickinson ("Ask Amy" nationally syndicated advice columnist, regular participant on NPR's "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!", and author of "The Mighty Queens of Freeville") will present one of her favorite films, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's 1945 drama I Know Where I'm Going!. Starring Wendy Hiller, I Know Where I'm Going! is the story of a young middle-class Englishwoman who is determined to have the finer things in life. To that end she plans to marry Sir Robert Bellinger, a wealthy, middle-aged industrialist whom she does not love. En route to the Island of Kiloran (mythical), where her future husband resides, Joan is stranded on the nearby island of Mull. Inclement weather keeps her grounded for a week, during which time she unexpectedly falls in love...

Why does Amy Dickinson love I Know Where I'm Going!? "It's a lot like my own story. Career girl veers off the beaten path onto an islend where she learns she is no match for the cast of eccentric locals. And she gets to fall in love. It's Ithaca, only with bag pipes."

The Red Shoes will be presented by Thelma Schoonmaker, Oscar-winning editor and widow of the film's co-creator, Michael Powell. She will also receive the festival's Susan B.

The Whitsell Auditorium of the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon, is running a "British Noir" season from 17 December to 3 January. They aren't showing The Small Back Room, but they are showing Peeping Tom on Sat. Dec. 26, 5pm; Sun. Dec. 27, 7pm; Sun. Jan. 3, 7pm.

Peeping Tom
Director: Michael Powell
Great Britain, 1960

"The bodies pile up as sensitive film studio focus puller Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm) moonlights as a 'private' photographer of scantily clad women, while obsessively working on his own 'documentary' with the world's most lethal tripod. Obviously, this perverse examination of 'scoptophilia' wasn't expected from the director of such artistically acclaimed works as Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes, and Powell's career was effectively destroyed by the critical savaging: 'The sickest and filthiest film I remember seeing' - 'It's been a long time since a film disgusted me as much as Peeping Tom'... In the ensuing decades, the film's stature has skyrocketed, with critics and audiences continuing to cringe at its unsettling mayhem, their nerves already lacerated by the garish color photography and design, as well as the jangling piano-and-bongo score." - Film Forum.

"Visually elegant, endlessly perverse. This film's endless, often outrageously Freudian allusions to the nature of seeing, possessing, and exploiting make it one of a kind. Its status as the kinkiest of cinema-conscious classics remains assured." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times.

Kelli Holloway, on the faculty of the Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute (OPI), is a psychodynamically oriented psychiatrist who specializes in issues related to depression/anxiety, trauma, professional and life transitions, and interpersonal relationships. She and Scott Murray, a psychiatrist and student at the OPI, will lead a post-film discussion after the screening on January 3.

26 November 2009 - 31 January 2010

The BFI are running an exhibition of artwork from The Red Shoes to go with their screening of the restored film from 11th to 30th December.

It szeems that the exhibition will mainly be showing the designs by Hein Heckroth and Ivor Beddoes for the film as a whole and particularly for the ballet.

See article in The Guardian

Nathalie Morris of the BFI adds:
As you know, the exhibition opened on Thursday and is showing a variety of scripts, letters, production designs and other items including a pair of the red shoes as worn by Moira Shearer, wallpaper designed by Hein Heckroth and a souvenir silk scarf (all generously loaned by Martin Scorsese). Moira Shearer's daughter has also kindly lent us two items - a beautiful card hand-painted by Heckroth and signed by cast and crew (Michael Powell has inscribed it 'put on the red shoes, Moira, and dance for us again' and a book of Walter de la Mare's love poems given to Shearer by Marius Goring. Goring has inscribed this 'To Vicky' and with love from 'Julian'.

Here's a link to some photos from the installation, including a lovely one of Rachel (Moira's daughter) holding the shoes.
