"We are deeply saddened by the death of Terence Davies, one of the greatest British film directors. His visceral passion, joy and drive enabled him to produce lyrical, deeply moving films. A quote from a poem that Terence wrote about another film director Jonathan Gili is very apt for Terence himself:
'Let love for him whose life we touched Be touched by him - for now, for good'
We were so privileged to have had Terence present the LFA awards at last year’s showcase and are eternally grateful for his incredible contribution to our filmmaking community."
Daisy Gili & Anna MacDonald
"A poet of pain, ecstasy and epiphany, Terence Davies is a colossal loss to British cinema"
Written by Peter Bradshaw
