Glasgow Film Festival
Filmworker

Tue 27 February 2018

After his acclaimed performance as Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon (1975), actor Leon Vitali virtually disappeared from cinema screens. Filmworker reveals the extraordinary story of what happened as he sacrificed a thriving acting career to become Stanley Kubrick’s right hand man for more than two decades. Previously unseen footage, memos and photos accompany Vitali’s candid, uproarious tales, providing a fascinating insight into what it was like to be at the centre of Kubrick’s world during the making of The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut.

Also screening at Glasgow Film Theatre, Wed 28 Feb, 4pm
