This program presents four of Jennings's greatest short films, all are surprising and thoughtful records of life on the home front in wartime England.
Among them is Listen to Britain (20 mins., 35mm), his 1942 masterpiece, which was ostensibly addressed to an American audience. Also included are Spare Time (1939, 15 mins., 35mm), Words for Battle (1941, 8 mins., 35mm), and The Silent Village (1943, 36 mins., 35mm).
