Gimme Some Truth: Filmworker

Sat, Nov 3 / 9:15 pm
Directed by Tony Zierra
2018, USA, 94 min

Introduced by Rodney Ascher.

Leon Vitali was a rising British actor when Stanley Kubrick picked him for the role of Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon. That first encounter with the famed auteur proved decisive — he swiftly resolved to devote the rest of his life working for the director, this time behind the scenes, and took on just about every job available: casting director, acting coach, location scout, sound engineer, color corrector, A.D., promoter, and eventually restorer of Kubrick’s films. Tony Zierra’s affecting documentary profiles the devoted “filmworker” — Vitali’s preferred job title — as he enthusiastically recounts his days with the notoriously meticulous, volatile and obsessive director. Filmworker celebrates the invisible hands that shape masterpieces, reminding us that behind every great director, there is a Leon Vitali. – Telluride Film Festival

Plays with Haunted, Horrifying Sounds from Beyond the Grave / Directed by Rodney Ascher, 2018, USA, 5 min / A sound effects artist gets more than he bargained for when his record producer demands that he make an album of chilling Halloween sounds for kids.

Reviews

Five stars! Tender. A revealing and stirring celebration of one of cinema’s unacknowledged heroes.
– Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian  
An arresting cinemaniac documentary. Pure candy for Kubrick buffs.
– Owen Gleiberman, Variety
