Shadows from Light: The Photography of Bill Brandt 1983

59 mins United Kingdom Director. Stephen Dwoskin

The singular vision of avant-garde filmmaker Stephen Dwoskin sheds new light on the work of British photographer Bill Brandt, focusing in particular on his connections with the Surrealist movement, his portraiture, and his nudes. The film was broadcast as part of Channel Four's ground-breaking series Eleventh Hour (1982-88), devised to showcase independent and experimental films.

Dwoskin had been a leading light in experimental film since the early 1960s and was a founding member of London Filmmakers Co-op. This was his first feature documentary and was shown at the 27th London Film Festival in 1983.
