Through The Bloody Mists of Time is an imaginative, inspiring essay film that examines Marxist philosopher Walter Benjamin and the British filmmaker Humphrey Jennings.


Using archival films shot during the Paris Exposition of 1937, shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, the film speculates ‘what if’ Jennings had shot a film of the expo and ‘what if’ the two men had somehow met in the French capital, or perhaps somewhere else?


Through The Bloody Mists of Time’s narrative offers a dérive through the twentieth century, modernism, surrealism, capitalism, and the nature of Europe forms the basis of the imagined conversation, in this fascinating film.
