A key figure in post-war documentary, John Krish made films with a clarity of purpose and an understated, unsentimental, profoundly engaged humanism. This selection of four of his finest works deal with a Britain in transition:
The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953, 10min);
They Took Us to the Sea (1961, 26min)
Our School (1962, 28min);
I Think They Call Him John (1964, 28min).
Poignant, to the point and still relevant.
