Harry Birrell Presents - Films of Love and War

In the Summer of 1941, a young Scottish soldier set sail for war. He took his camera and an obsession for making movies. Now those films and his diary have been recovered, and edited into a film, narrated by Richard Madden, famous for his role as one of the Starks in Game of Thrones. Matt Pinder’s beautifully composed, captivating documentary plunders the treasure trove of Harry’s 400 films and personal diaries to capture a vivid sense of wartime years spent in Bombay, the jungles of Burma and the mountains of Nepal. It’s one man’s cinematic vision of the 20th century and his own incredible journey through it. Website: Harry Birrell Presents - Films of Love and War
