Synopsis
Highly influential in cinema history, the Free Cinema movement not only reinvented documentary in the 1950s but also spearheaded the British New Wave of social-realist feature films. This three-disk collection has brought together the films that represent the best of Free Cinema.

Some were shot on a shoestring budget with a 16mm Bolex by first time directors such as Karel Reisz and Tony Richardson (Momma Don t Allow), while others were more ambitious 35mm featurettes, including those by Lindsay Anderson (Every Day Except Christmas) and Karel Reisz (We Are the Lambeth Boys).

Disc 3 offers a 43-minute documentary with a special collection of rarely seen films made in the spirit of Free Cinema, as well as interviews, clips, and previously unpublished stills.

Films included are: O Dreamland (1953)
Refuge England (1959), One Potato, Two Potato (1957)
Momma Don t Allow (1956), Enginemen (1959)
March to Aldermaston (1959), Together (1956)
