Product Information

John Krish is one of British cinema s best-kept secrets: a master of post-war documentary filmmaking who repeatedly turned his works for sponsors as diverse at the Central Office of Information (COI) and the NSPCC into, not just effective non-fiction films, but truly stirring cinema to rank alongside the world s greatest directors. A Day in the Life collects together four of his most cherished films: The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953), Our School (1962), They Took Us to the Sea (1961), and I Think They Call Him John (1964). In each of these films richly textured with the details of everyday post-war life Krish combines a deep belief in human beings with a compulsive desire to push the documentary form forward. This essential and critically acclaimed collection is supplemented with an interview with Krish, as well as with Krish s rarely seen films I Want to Go to School (1959) and Mr Marsh Comes to School (1961). Extra Features: Dual Format Edition: includes both Blu-ray and the DVD versions of all films; Interview with John Krish recorded in December 2010 at the BFI Southbank; Two bonus films by Krish: I Want to Go to School (1959, 30mins) and Mr Marsh Comes to School (1961, 28min); Transferred from best available film elements, preserved in the BFI National Archive, to High Definition
