After a career spanning seventy years, the late Jack Cardiff is widely recognised as the greatest British cinematographer in history. Black Narcissus, which won him an Oscar, and The Red Shoes are just a few of the many beautifully shot films bearing Cardiff's hallmark. Filmed a year before his death at the age of 94, this affectionate biography brims with insightful anecdotes and pre-digital-era tricks of the trade from the man himself. Scores of accolades from distinguished industry figures - including legendary director Martin Scorsese - paint a fine portrait of an unassuming gentleman with a life and lens always full of dramatic colour.
This visually spectacular, dreamlike film from Powell and Pressburger is one of the great classics of British cinema.
