Product description

Product Description

THE EDGE OF THE WORLD (Blu-ray)
A film by Michael Powell

When the skipper of a tourist yacht (Niall MacGinnis), lands reluctantly on the remote shores of Hirta - the now-deserted Hebridean island of his birth - he is overwhelmed by memories from a time before its evacuation. A powerful story of love, rivalry and survival against the harsh elemental realities of island life and an ever-encroaching modernity, The Edge of the World is the first independent production by legendary British director Michael Powell.
