Made to mark the 100th anniversary of the RAF, Spitfire (2018) is the documentary-story of the fighter plane and pilots that helped win the Battle of Britain in World War II.
They say she was beautiful. A dream. But for all her good looks, she was also a killer.
Spitfire is an epic, sweeping tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an aeroplane that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered, and refined in the white heat of combat - going on to become the most famous fighter plane ever made.
Credited with changing the course of world history, this is the story of the Spitfire - told in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans. With stunning aerial footage from the world's top aviation photographer, the film also contains rare, digitally re-mastered, archive footage from the tumultuous days of the 1940's when her power in the skies was unrivalled. Spitfire also explores how this extraordinary plane thrives today and how it has become an international icon.
We are delighted to welcome Anthony Palmer, co-director of Spitfire, who will be joining us after the film to take part in a 'Question & Answer' session which will no doubt be incredibly insightful.
He will also take the opportunity to talk about his latest film on the Lancaster Bomber, which should be fascinating to hear about given Shere Village's connections with the Dambusters' raid.
Please do come along and join us for what will be a truly memorable event.
