We toast film and friendship with this utterly unique, enduringly rich and strange romantic fantasia made in 1946, made in a combination of glorious Technicolor (for Earth) and lustrous black and white (in Heaven). A British wartime aviator (David Niven) who cheats death must argue for his life before a celestial court. 

A Matter of Life and Death is the utterly unique, enduringly rich and strange romantic fantasia from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.”  ★★★★★  Guardian

This is a hard of hearing screening.  This means that all the sounds are subtitled - like, *she laughs*.  This level of audio description is a boon for many but may be annoying for others.
