Cinema Rediscovered 2017
Girls Like Us
World War II Britain gave fertile inspiration to emergent women writers, producers and stars, and resulted in some astonishing propaganda movies that merged stark reality with fiction and fantasy, many with a female bias.
Producer Stephen Woolley has selected two highlights from his recent Girls Like Us season at BFI Southbank, showcasing distinguished wartime films that embraces the everyday reality of a besieged and battered Britain.
The season was inspired by the development and making of Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest (produced by Stephen Woolley), which is also screening as part of this Girls Like Us strand of Cinema Rediscovered.
