The Danish Film House in Copenhagen and its excellent Cinemateket puts a focus on British documentary through 8 programmes in the month of May. There is a selection of the classics from the 30’es (Night Mail, Listen to Britain, O Dreamland etc.) and there are films by Molly Dineen (Home from the Hill) and Kim Longinotto  (her latest Rough Aunties). The Must-See, however, if you have time for only one of the screenings, is Terence Davies new masterpiece from Liverpool, Of Time and the City. The site of Cinemateket gives little info on the films, so if you want more on Of Time and the City (photo) you just search the title on this page.

PS. And please programmers of Cinemateket, get hold of the newest film of Molly Dineen, The Lie of the Land, the most important film about the decline of civilisation I have seen for years.
