John Krish is one of British cinema’s best-kept secrets: a master of post-war documentary filmmaking who repeatedly turned his works for sponsors as diverse at the Central Office of Information (COI) and the NSPCC into not just effective non-fiction films, but truly stirring cinema to rank alongside the world’s greatest directors. A Day in the Life collects together four of his most cherished films: The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953),a farewell to London’s Trams; Our School (1962), charting the beliefs of educators, and the aspirations of the decade’s young school-leavers; They Took Us to the Sea (1961), a poignant record of a seaside outing for disadvantaged children; and I Think They Call Him John (1964), a deeply moving account of an elderly widower. In each of these films - richly textured with the details of everyday post-war life - Krish combines a deep belief in human beings with a compulsive desire to push the documentary form forward.
