Jack Cardiff Documentary in Washington

Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff is screening at Washington’s West End Cinema from today through to July 14.

” ‘Cameraman’ should be required viewing for anyone interested in becoming more visually literate in an ever-more-media-drenched age. What’s more, it’s chock-full of yummy anecdotes from Cardiff’s work with such stars as Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, who inscribed a photo to him with the line, ‘Dear Jack, if only I could be the way you created me.’ And if only movies could be the way Cardiff himself made them: drenched in color, spinning with movement and brimming with an intoxicating sense of life.”
