The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands
  • Description

    A stunning new restoration of a British World War I epic, this is one of the greatest British films from the silent era.

    Originally released in 1927 to great acclaim and popularity, The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands is an exciting recreation of two key battles faced by the Royal Navy in the early days of World War One. The first major engagement between German and British ships at Coronel was a terrible defeat for Britain with the loss of two warships. Later the British responded in a desperate bid to save the morale of a nation at war.

    The stunning restoration has a stirring new score by award-winning composer Simon Dobson, commissioned by the BFI and performed, appropriately, by 24 members of the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines in honour of the 24 members of the band who lost their lives with the sinking of HMS Monmouth at the battle of Coronel.

    Features:

    • Four Archive shorts: Sea Dreams (1914, 6mins); Naval Review (1914, 5mins); Our Naval Losses (1914, 1min); England Expects (1914, 1min)
    • Recording the Score (2014, 7 mins): new documentary with interviews with the Royal Navy and Simon Dobson
    • Restoration featurette (2014): a before-and-after analysis of the restoration work
    • Fully illustrated booklet with new essays and full credits

    Directed by Walter Summers

    Restored by the BFI National Archive

    Score by Simon Dobson
