Terence Davies’s cinema is one besotted with music as well as movies. During a special screening of his latest film, Sunset Song, the greatest living British filmmaker wanders the halls of Museum of the Moving Image in New York with host Eric Hynes and talks about the popular songs that helped shape his childhood, and which in turn helped shape his cinema. And with the help of a flickering projector and typically game spirit, he recreates the most iconic image in any of his films.

Sunset Song is in theaters now.

Museum of the Moving Image’s full retrospective series, Terence Davies, runs through Sunday, May 22, 2016.
