There's warmth, humour and real poignancy in this captivating collection of post-war shorts by acclaimed British documentary maker John Krish. Providing richly detailed snapshots of 1950s and 1960s life, the black and white films capture a society in transition that’s visually alien yet emotionally familiar. From the frequently amusing look at teens in a Hertfordshire secondary school to a heart-breaking portrait of a lonely and elderly widower, Krish explores the universal themes of progress, adolescence, old age and loss with sensitivity and technical skill. It’s a compilation packed with memorable and often lovely moments: including a pair of jolly Cockneys enjoying the last days of London’s tram system and the priceless expressions of disadvantaged children as they see the English seaside - many for the first time.
