Who is Terence Davies?

Terence Davies is an English screenwriter, film director, sometime novelist and actor. As a filmmaker, Davies is noted for his recurring themes of emotional endurance, the influence of memory on everyday life and the potentially crippling effects of dogmatic religiosity on the emotional life of individuals and societies. Stylistically, Davies' works are notable for their symmetrical compositions, "symphonic" structure and measured pace. He is also the sole screenwriter of all his films. Contrary to the credits accorded him on IMDb.com, Terence Davies has never acted professionally.
