"Obsessive fans of the exuberant and enchanting British filmmaking team the Archers -- Michael Powell, who largely directed, and Emeric Pressburger, who largely wrote the screenplays -- will not want to miss CAMERAMAN, a documentary about Jack Cardiff, the cinematographer behind some of their most indelible images."
Los Angeles Times - 06/03/2011
"[F]illed with gloriously vivid HD clips of his groundbreaking work...as well as rich anecdotes from Cardiff, who died in 2009."
Take a colorful trip through cinema history while discovering the incredible story of celebrated British cinematographer Jack Cardiff. An incredibly prolific director of photography, Cardiff worked with some of the biggest names in the film industry, including Alfred Hitchcock and John Huston. In 1947, Cardiff won an Academy Award for his work on the film BLACK NARCISSUS. Fifty-four years and three nominations later, he would take home a lifetime achievement Oscar for his invaluable contributions to the world of film. From his early years as a child actor to his ultimate career as one of the best cinematographers in Hollywood, Cardiff captured images that enthralled the masses. Acclaimed director Martin Scorsese takes viewers on a guided tour of Cardiff's life and career as a host of Hollywood luminaries share their stories and memories of the man who inspired countless filmmakers to follow their dreams.
