One of the greatest figures in the celebrated British Documentary film movement, Humphery Jennings is most remembered for the way his films reflected the concerns and conditions of World War II in the United Kingdom. Jennings was a wonderful filmmaker who made uniquely beautiful films. He had a poet's command of film language, a painter's eye for evocative imagery and composition, a musician's ear for rhythm and tone and counterpoint, a Soviet's sense of juxtaposition, a journalist's nose for the concrete and the factual, and a compassionate man's love for the people he portrayed. This six film collection allows the world to see the power and beauty of Jennings's historically important films. Films: London Can Take It (1940, 9 min.), Words for Battle (1941, 8 min.), Listen to Britain (1942, 18 min.), Fires Were Started (a.k.a. I Was a Fireman) (1943, 74 min.), A Diary for Timothy (1943, 39 min.), Family Portrait (1951, 24 min.).
