A Matter of Life and Death
Crashed fighter pilot Peter implores heaven to postpone his death. The reason: he has only recently fallen in love with June. Long before Der Himmel über Berlin (also screened by Eye), British filmmaker Michael Powell moved between monochrome and splendid Technicolor in this romantic tale.
Screened in 35mm (Eye collection)
