Restored & Unseen: The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

In the war year 1943, Winston Churchill was ‘not amused’ by Powell & Pressburger's satire on the British army. For a long time, only shortened versions circulated, often in black and white, of the first Technicolor film made by the illustrious film duo. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp was restored to its original length in 2011 thanks to the efforts of filmmaker and cinephile Martin Scorsese. What can the film tell us about British national identity today in 2020?  

Introduced by Eye programmer Leo van Hee (in Dutch)
