The UK Film Council had launched a report, Stories We Tell Ourselves: The Cultural Impact of UK Film 1946-2006, which deals with the most powerful cultural and social agents of film of the last 100 years.
Taking 200 iconic films from the past six decades, it traces how British cinema has upheld some traditional British values – and mocked, challenged and undermined others. It shows how important film has been in sustaining and developing the identity of the UK’s nations and regions, and in reflecting the changing face of Britain’s different communities. And it charts the extraordinary power British film can wield at home and abroad – even more so with the massive economic and technological evolution film has experienced in recent years.
