The British Film Festival will present “Hope and Glory” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, in Plaster Hall’s Cornell Auditorium.

The 1987 film by director John Boorman recalls the early days of World War II in Britain, as seen through the eyes of a young boy. Critic Leonard Maltin said the film is “funny, moving and richly detailed; no one has captured the experience of living through the London air raids and bombings as well.”

Admission is free and open to the public.
