Abstract

The Archers’ manifesto delineates the strategy used by Powell and Pressburger to invent many of the aspects of independent cinema some thirty years before its rise in the United States. One of the key reasons that the Archers, and other UK producers, were at the forefront of independent cinema was the profound need to draw a distinction between the English-language cinema of Great Britain and that of Hollywood. It is also an avant la lettre statement of auteurist principles.
