  • Description

    Shot over four arduous months in the wild, windswept Shetland Islands, Michael Powell's first independent production establishes the daring techniques and experimentation that would later become familiar hallmarks of his career. The Edge of the World tells the moving story of a remote island and its inhabitants, whose traditions and way of life are threatened by a rapidly industrialising world.

    This brand new digital restoration has been created from the original 35mm negative and personally supervised by Powell's widow Thelma Schoonmaker - Martin Scorcese's long -time editor.

    Special Features:

    • Daniel Day-Lewis reads extracts from 200,000 Feet on Foula
    • Commentary featuring Thelma Schoonmaker (Michael Powell's widow, Martin Scorsese's editor) and film critic Ian Christie
