The Edge of the World + Return to the Edge of the World

The Edge of the World is director Michael Powell’s breakthrough film, about the evacuation of a remote Hebridean island (1936, 75min).  This is followed by Return to the Edge of the World, where Powell, with surviving members of the cast and crew, return to Foula to recall their youthful exploits (1978, 23min).

“Powell nursed his passion project about tensions within a remote island’s community for years. The epic location shoot on the island of Foula was both an artistic triumph and a career breakthrough.” James Bell

Director: Michael Powell.  With John Laurie, Belle Chrystall and Finlay Currie.
