Benjamin Britten is the most performed British composer worldwide, and this feature length bio-drama has been released as part of the centenary celebrations of his birth.   Narrated by John Hurt and with a superb cast, including many supporting roles taken by students of Gresham's School, the film weaves dramatically through a factual documentary explaining the background to Britten's pacifism and politics.

"Peace and Conflict" is a beautiful and touching evocation of Britten's schooling at Gresham's and the values there inculcated, which remained with him for life. Rubbing shoulders with Donald Maclean and with the ghosts of the young Gresham's soldiers killed in the First World War swirling through the quads, the young Britten develops from a hesitant, watchful student into a steely young man.

"This is a moving and engrossing film, with terrific performances and tender appreciation of Britten's music." Paul Kildea - author of Benjamin Britten: A Life in the Twentieth Century.

Directed by Tony Britten.
