Malcolm Arnold - A Story of Survival

Tony Palmer | 2004 | 133 MINS
Tony Palmer’s illuminating documentary won the audience award for best documentary when it was first premiered at the Chichester International Film Festival in 2004.

In Detail

This documentary celebrates Malcolm Arnold, one of Britain's most underestimated and yet most popular composers, who wrote scores to altogether 132 films including 'Whistle Down the Wind', 'Hobson's Choice' and the Oscar winning 'Bridge Over the River Kwai'.

Sir Malcolm also composed ballets, symphonies and operas. The film features interviews with friends and family, and includes extracts from his works, however, it does not shirk the darker side of Arnold's life full of complications caused by mental illness.

We are delighted to welcome Tony Palmer to introduce his documentary
