Highly influential in cinema history, the Free Cinema movement not only reinvented documentary in the 1950s but also spearheaded the British New Wave of social-realist feature films. This three-disk collection has brought together the films that represent the best of Free Cinema. Some were shot on a shoestring budget with a 16mm Bolex by first time directors such as Karel Reisz and Tony Richardson (Momma Don t Allow), while others were more ambitious 35mm featurettes, including those by Lindsay Anderson (Every Day Except Christmas) and Karel Reisz (We Are the Lambeth Boys). Disc 3 offers a 43-minute documentary with a special collection of rarely seen films made in the spirit of Free Cinema, as well as interviews, clips, and previously unpublished stills. Films included are: O Dreamland (1953), Refuge England (1959), One Potato, Two Potato (1957), Momma Don t Allow (1956), Enginemen (1959), March to Aldermaston (1959), Together (1956), We Are the Lambeth Boy (1959), The Vanishing Street (1962), Wakefield Express (1952), Food for a Blush(1959), Tomorrow s Saturday (1962),Nice Time (1957), Gala Day (1963),The Singing Street (1952), Small Is Beautiful (2006), Every Day Except Christmas (1957)
