Powell and Pressburger

Powell and Pressburger

The films made by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger between 1939 and 1972 represent one of the most successful filmmaking partnerships cinema has seen. Under the guise of their production company, The Archers, Powell and Pressburger specialised in making art films in disguise; taking recognisable genres and storylines, and clothing them in their own inimitable fashion. Their widely respected collective body of work exists in an aesthetic and narrative realm all of its own.
