I Know Where I’m Going!

Saturday 25th November, 2023

MAC Birmingham - Cinema | 14:00 - 15:50

With this offbeat metaphysical romance, Michael Powell shows his wonderful knack for capturing landscape - see also Gone to Earth. The title statement (and song) comes from our headstrong heroine Joan (Wendy Hiller), determined to marry a wealthy industrialist until an encounter with the outer Hebrides and naval officer Roger Livesey turns everything upside down. Rich in mythology and symbolism, I Know Where I’m Going! is a counterpoint to the propaganda and stodgy realism of much wartime British cinema. It can be seen here in full effect thanks to a beautiful new 4K restoration from the BFI.

This evening will include a short film about the filming of Gone to Earth in the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock, produced by Brian Harley and Flatpack as part of our Powell & Pressburger season.
