|Filmworker – Trailer
Leon Vitali was a rising British television actor when Stanley Kubrick picked him for the role of Lord Bullingdon inÂ Barry Lyndon. That first encounter with the famed auteur proved decisive â€” he swiftly resolved to devote the rest of his life working for the director, this time behind the scenes, and took on just about every job available: casting director, acting coach, location scouter, sound engineer, color corrector, A.D., promoter, and eventually restorer of Kubrickâ€™s films. Tony Zierraâ€™s affecting documentary profiles the devoted â€œfilmworkerâ€� â€” Vitaliâ€™s preferred job title â€” as he enthusiastically recounts his days with the notoriously meticulous, volatile and obsessive director. The experiences brought both tremendous sacrifice and glowing pride.
