Michael Powell, The Edge of the World, 1937

Members' Screening: The Edge of the World

23 Feb 2014

Michael Powell’s film tells the moving story of a remote island and its inhabitants, whose traditions and way of life are threatened by a rapidly industrialising world. To settle an argument over whether the islanders should give up their livelihood and move to the mainland, two childhood friends follow an ancient tradition and climb the island's highest cliff face. The outcome shatters the island's peace and splits the two clans apart.
