Featured Screening: The Terence Davies Trilogy at BAMCinématek
In these debut works, made 1976-1983, elements characterizing much of Davies’ later work is already in place: erudition, a stark, elegant style and thematic preoccupation with time and longing. They tell the continuing story of Davies’s alter-ego Robert Tucker at the points of childhood, young adult life and middle age, and each are structured from the point of view of Robert one generation reflecting back. The first, released when Davies was 31, deals mostly with Robert’s abusive family, religious upbringing and alienation from taunting classmates. In the middle piece, Robert, like Davies at the time, works a banal clerical position by day while indulging his sexuality in the evenings. The third, most acclaimed piece, centers around death—both as Robert experiences it within his own family earlier in his life, and also, at an older age, as he faces his own mortality.
The Terence Davies Trilogy runs at 4:30, 6:50 and 9:15 pm today, and the series continues with Distant Voices, Still Lives Friday, The House of Mirth Saturday and The Neon Bible Tuesday.
