Noted film scholar Wheeler Winston Dixon offes a behind-the-scenes look into the lives of both major and marginalized figures who have dynamically transformed the landscape of international cinema in the 20th century. Fifteen interviews spanning two decades of research are collected here, with many appearing in uncut form for the first time. Dixon's interviewees represent a wide range of cinematic professions (directors, animators, actors, writers and producers) from several branches of cinema (artistic, avant-garde, and commercial) with Dixon providing an introduction prior to each interview. Purposeful in his selections, Dixon offers up voices from 20th-century cinema that have never before had the chance to speak at such length and detail, as well as much more well-known figures addressing unique and obscure aspects from their respective careers. Collectively, this volume presents a treasure trove of firsthand information of keen interest to film scholars and movie buffs alike, while providing a glimpse into the future of cinema in the 21st century.
