NEWS: Daniel Meadows new CRB title


New title from Café Royal Books, Daniel Meadows’s film stills from Tony Palmer’s Testimony, 1987.

Tony Palmer’s 1987 film of Testimony: The Story of Shostakovich stars Ben Kingsley as Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975). Despite being set in the Soviet Union it was made largely in the North of England. Locations include: Haigh Hall, Wigan; Eckersley Mill No.2, Swan Meadow, Wigan; Lever Park, Bolton; Alhambra Theatre, Bradford; St. George’s Hall, Liverpool; Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, Windermere.

Testimony is one of those comparatively rare events nowadays — a real piece of cinema. Palmer’s prowess as an editor, his knack of juxtaposing image and music — something which has remained his forte since he first caused a stir back in the Sixties with Buddhist monks burning to The Beatles — has a field day in Testimony. Most importantly for a movie about a composer, there is always the feeling that Palmer understands the music.” Derek Elley Films & Filming.

This story is about the England I come from.

TV documentary. 1969. Beautiful, Beautiful. BBC Omnibus about four photographers. At one point Davidson, who was working on East 100th St. (his book about Harlem) says: "I poise, not pose, people... People have an innate dignity and they will set themselves before the camera in a dignified way. And they will choose what they will give."
