Why every film fan should know and remember Vilmos Zsigmond...
This is a found-footage documentary exploring the work of cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond who died on the 1st January this year.
Subtitles are available. I will CC the titles of films soon.
While researching and cutting this video, I was reminded of these words from Sylvia Plath:
The night sky is only a sort of carbon paper,
Blueblack, with the much-poked periods of stars
Letting in the light, peephole after peephole---
A bonewhite light, like death, behind all things.
