The film that inspired more dystopian visions than any other in the last 50 years has somehow ended up on youtube in the original french. A film made using black and white photos apart from a single famous motion picture shot. Chris Marker was an extraordinary filmmaker whose work was the subject of a recent retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery.
I met Simon Annand when I was a kid working at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill, London. Simon was taking production shots for Stephen Daldry, Laurence Boswell and Katie Mitchel. I want to interview Simon about what he has seen behind closed doors and what insights he has gained on acting and head shots. This is a good short film about his work.
