Shot over four arduous months in the wild, windswept Shetland Islands, Michael Powell's first independent production establishes the daring techniques and experimentation that would later become familiar hallmarks of his career. The Edge of the World tells the moving story of a remote island and its inhabitants, whose traditions and way of life are threatened by a rapidly industrialising world.

This brand new digital restoration has been created from the original 35mm negative and personally supervised by Powell's widow Thelma Schoonmaker - Martin Scorcese's long -time editor.

Michael Powell's first film is significant in that he was one of the best film directors ever. This classic set on a Scottish island is fascinating too. The blu-ray transfer is true HD quality for a 30's film. It couldn't look better.
