Molly Dineen Collection: Volume One

Synopsis
This is the first of three volumes that brings all of Molly Dineen’s films to DVD. HOME FROM THE HILL (1987): Dineen’s debut follows charismatic Colonel Hilary Hook, an elderly retired soldier, as he returns to Kenya from Britain. MY AFRICAN FARM (1988): Dineen returns to Kenya and to the home of Sylvia Richardson, building a complex and uncompromising portrait of an unswerving stalwart of British colonialism. HEART OF THE ANGEL (1989): capturing life in one of London’s busiest underground stations. IN THE COMPANY OF MEN (1995): in this three-part series we join Major Crispin Black and his men in the Prince of Wales Company of the Welsh Guards during a final tour of duty in pre-ceasefire Northern Ireland.

DVD extras include unseen footage from HEART OF THE ANGEL (2010): featuring an introduction and commentary by Molly Dineen, Interview with Molly Dineen and Major Crispin Black on the making of IN THE COMPANY OF MEN (2010) and a fully illustrated booklet featuring new essays and notes.
