Cameraman: The Life And Work Of Jack Cardiff
A rare insight into eighty years of cinema through the personal, first-hand recollections of one of Britain's most acclaimed filmmakers.
Since 1918 as a child actor in silent movies alongside Dorothy Gish, Jack Cardiff's life and career in cinematography and directing have been inextricably interwoven with the history of cinema: from Dietrich, Powell and Pressburger's, Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes, Hitchcock, Huston's The African Queen, Monroe, Bogart, Flynn, Douglas to Schwarzenegger and Stallone.
With interviews with over twenty famous actors, directors and producers, including unique behind-the scenes footage from Jack's own personal archive, the documentary is the most detailed film ever made on a cinematographer. Jack is a charismatic storyteller, whose exceptional experiences are both entertaining and inspirational.
