A film about director John Boorman
'When I started out making movies I used to feel guilty that craftsmen were using good timber to construct my fantasies when they could be building homes. There is a terrible arrogance about taking these resources and converting them into shadow, into nothing. In making a movie we take the material elements of our society and transmute them into a stream of light flowing onto a wall, and we hope that it will contain something of our spirit.'
In this film John Boorman , whose feature films include
Point Blank, Deliverance, Excalibur and now The
Emerald Forest, returns to
Bristol, the BBC, and his film-making roots, where 25 years ago he started as a documentary film maker. Film cameraman JOHN WARWICK Film editor ROBIN JACKMAN Producer STEVE POOLE
