Fires Were Started

Fires Were Started

1943, True Life
British filmmaker Humphrey Jennings wrote and directed this World War II propaganda docudrama celebrating the heroic bravery of Britain's fire fighters at a time when German bombers were causing endless conflagrations. The uncredited actors are real firemen from a working London fire house, but Jennings and his crew organize the footage into a fictionalized story about a new man joining the crew and meeting his fellow firefighters (both male and female) before embarking on his first assignment.
