The Long Day Closes (R2) in July

BFI have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Long Day Closes on 28th July 2008 priced at £19.99. Following his prize-winning debut feature film Distant Voices, Still Lives (1988), in 1992 Terence Davies made The Long Day Closes, now released by the BFI on DVD for the first time, alongside The Terence Davies Trilogy.

Terence Davies’ lyrical hymn to childhood revisits the same territory as Distant Voices, Still Lives, this time focusing on his own memories of growing up in a working-class Catholic family in Liverpool.

Features include:

  • Full feature commentary with Terence Davies and Director of Photography Mick Coulter (Sense and Sensibility, Love Actually)
  • On-set interview with production designer Christopher Hobbs (Velvet Goldmine, Orlando)
  • Previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage of Terence Davies directing
  • 18-page illustrated booklet with essays, director biography and credits
  • Fully uncompressed PCM stereo audio

The BFI will release Terence Davies’ new film Of Time and the City in cinemas nationwide on 31 October and on DVD in 2009.
