MAN OF CINEMA – PIERRE RISSIENT

Director: TODD MCCARTHY

U.S.A. • 2007 • COLOUR • 110 MIN


PIERRE RISSIENT, 72, IS ONE OF THE MOST INTRIGUING FIGURES TO HAVE WORKED BEHIND THE SCENES IN FILM PRODUCTION.
His close friend Todd McCarthy, chief film critic of Variety, has taken up his camera to make an affectionate portrait of Rissient, a cinephile of obsessive dimensions who has had a considerable impact on the lives of many a young filmmaker. Wonderful anecdotes from many of these luminaries abound in the film, as well as tales of Rissient’s friendships and fights with Fritz Lang, Joseph Losey and Mike Leigh, while carefully selected archival footage evokes the spirit of this rich period in the history of cinema.To book, click [here]
