A Valentine's Day special! Join Point of View as we present Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's "A Matter of Life and Death (1946) (AKA, Stairway to Heaven)." This pinnacle of British filmmaking stars David Niven and Kim Hunter as a pair of star-crossed lovers brought together and then torn apart by the horrors of WWII. Forced to bail out without his parachute, RAF pilot Peter Carter (David Niven) miraculously survives, washing ashore on a sandy beach. As it turns out, a mistake has been made in heaven. There, God presides over a supreme court of angels as they debate whether or not Peter should be permitted to stay with June (Kim Hunter) or be forced to surrender to heaven. Beautifully shot by legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff, A Matter of Life and Death is a must-see for romantics and cinephiles everywhere.
This film screening is part of a continuing series between Point of View and Tapp’s Arts Center. P.O.V. meets monthly in the Skyline Room of Tapp’s Arts Center to view and discuss films of varying styles and genres from around the world.
