Terence Davies

Series Site

"One of the many remarkable things about the cinematic ravishments of Terence Davies is how they reconcile two seemingly disparate artistic tendencies—the intellectual, high modern tradition and the emotional, popular tradition—as if there was no contradiction inherent in this at all. Davies’s latest, A Quiet Passion, which examines the life and work of the groundbreaking New England poet, is no exception to this, and on the occasion of his American tour for the film, Metrograph is pleased to host Davies, whose Q&As are works of art in and of themselves."-Metrograph
