"The eerie atmosphere of misty Venice creeps across the courtyard of Somerset House as Nicolas Roeg's 1973 masterpiece casts its sinister spell..." So goes the siren's call for the Film4 Summer Screen open-air showing of Don't Look Now scheduled for 9.15pm Wednesday August 5. Beforehand (and indoors, I believe) at 6.30pm I'll be in conversation with Nic, under the aegis of BAFTA, on the subject of Don't Look Now and, I imagine, other things, some of those including films. The maestro will also take questions from the audience. All the needful information and advance ticketing stuff can be accessed here.
There's also a really good page over at BAFTA, devoted to their Roeg tribute evening of March 27 earlier this year. There you can watch and hear all the speakers from that evening, whether they were live or on tape, including Danny Boyle, Kevin Macdonald, Stephen Frears, James Marsh, Christopher Nolan, Terry Gilliam, Guillermo del Toro, Seamus McGarvey, Paul Greengrass, Mike Figgis, Sam Taylor-Wood... and, er, me, the one who hasn't directed a masterpiece box-office smash... But I was honoured to be in that line-up, and also in the team photo taken at the end, #14 in the Photo Gallery, wherein James Fox is at my side - a big moment for a Performance fan such as I.
