BAMPFA presents a selection of British writer/director Terence Davies’s films upon the release of his masterful A Quiet Passion, about the life of American poet Emily Dickinson. Highly regarded for his personal approach to filmmaking, Davies has persistently explored themes of memory, religion, emotion, and human experience. Perhaps not surprisingly, he has been described as a Proustian director. Formally, Davies works closely with his art director and cinematographer to get the right look for his period dramas. Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Long Day Closes are two early films that established his reputation for creating nuance on screen. Of Time and the City, a third film about Davies’s hometown of Liverpool, literally brings the filmmaker’s own voice to the foreground: Davies narrates his autobiographical work, which mirrors personal memories and emotions with a portrait of the city between 1945 and 1973. In A Quiet Passion, Davies sensitively recreates Emily Dickinson’s home life, the closeness she had with her family, and her reclusive existence as a prolific poet whose genius went unrecognized in her lifetime. True to form, Davies captures the wit and intellectual spirit of Dickinson with his erudite dialogue and his direction of Cynthia Nixon in the lead role.
