Douglas' magnificent, award-winning Trilogy is the product of an assured, formidable artistic vision. They are some of the most compelling films about childhood ever made.
Consisting My Childhood, My Ain Folk and My Way Home, subject matter is reduced to bare essentials: dialogue is minimal, and landscapes of fields, slag heaps and cobbled streets are shot in bleak, atmospheric monochrome. But it is the humour, warmth, affection and humanity that shine through in these films about an ultimately triumphant young boy.
