The Edge of the World (Region B)

Type: New Blu-Ray

The inhabitants of a remote island find their way of life threatened by a rapidly industrialising world

Michael Powell's first independent production, The Edge of the World, comes to Blu-ray in a new high definition presentation overseen and approved by Powell's widow, award-winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker-Powell.

When the skipper of a tourist yacht (Niall MacGinnis), lands reluctantly on the remote shores of Hirta – the now-deserted Hebridean island of his birth – he is overwhelmed by memories from a time before its evacuation. A powerful story of love, rivalry and survival against the harsh elemental realities of island life and an ever-encroaching modernity.
