Terence Davies is a globally respected writer and film director of both original and adapted works. As a filmmaker, Davies is noted for his recurring themes of emotional (and sometimes physical) endurance, the influence of memory on everyday life, and the potentially crippling effects of dogmatic religiosity on the emotional life of individuals and societies. Stylistically, Davies’s works are notable for their symmetrical compositions, “symphonic” structure, and measured pace. He is the sole screenwriter of all his films. The caliber of his work lead to Screen on the Green crediting him as “Britain’s Greatest Living Director” in 2009.
