CAMERAMAN: THE LIFE AND WORK OF JACK CARDIFF

DIRECTOR: Craig McCall - UNITED STATES

Over his 70-year career, Jack Cardiff shot some of the most visually dazzling films in screen history, working for great directors like John Huston, Alfred Hitchcock, and Michael Powell and earning equal praise from his leading men (John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston) and his leading ladies (Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn). Craig McCall’s accomplished documentary illuminates the cinematographer’s art and provides a rare insight into the workings of the movie world. With a wealth of interviews and glorious Technicolor film clips—including Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, The African Queen, and even Rambo—this passionate tribute and rich film history comes especially alive on the big screen it celebrates. “We have to keep making films like this one.”—Martin Scorsese. (86 mins.)

First Feature Film.
