World Film Locations: Liverpool

by Jez Conolly and Caroline Whelan (Editors)
£15.50   paperback  Intellect Books (2013)

World Film Locations: Liverpool by Jez Conolly  and Caroline Whelan (Editors) Outside of the capital London, no other British city has attracted more film-makers than Liverpool. Sometimes standing in for London, New York, Chicago, Paris, Rome or Moscow, and sometimes playing itself – or a version of its own past in Beatles biopics – Liverpool is an adaptable filmic backdrop that has attracted film-makers to its ports for decades. A place of passion, humour and pride, Liverpool evokes caverns and cathedrals, ferries and football grounds; it is a city so vivid we see it clearly even if we’ve never been there. From the earliest makers of moving images – among them the Mitchell & Kenyon film company, the Lumière brothers and pioneering early cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene – who preserved the city, the river, the docks, the streets and the people, Liverpool has endured as a cinematic destination.
 
This collection celebrates that survival instinct and will be welcomed by enthusiasts of British cities, films and culture.
