The Terence Davies Trilogy in July

BFI have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Terence Davies Trilogy on 28th July 2008 priced at £19.99. While at Coventry Drama School in the early 1970s, Terence Davies wrote the script for Children which he directed in 1976. He subsequently took up a place at The National Film School and with the support of the BFI Production Board, made his graduation film Madonna and Child (1980). Three years later, also part-funded by the BFI, he completed the Trilogy with Death and Transfiguration.

Restored by the BFI National Archive who worked closely with Terence himself, the films are preserved by the BFI and are now released on DVD for the first time alongside The Long Day Closes (1992).

Features include:

  • 1.33:1 Full Frame
  • Optional subtitles for the hearing impaired on the feature film and commentary tracks
  • Full feature commentary by Terence Davies
  • Filmed interview with Terence Davies by Geoff Andrew
  • 10-page illustrated booklet including essays by Derek Jarman and Distant Voices, Still Lives producer Jennifer Howarth on Terence Davies at Film School
