No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo and Vilmos (Director: James Chressanthis)

Laszlo & Vilmos introduces those outside of the film community to the two Hungarians who made the 60s and 70s look like they do in our collective memories. Through interviews with the two men’s colleagues and clips from their wildly eclectic filmographies, filmmaker and fellow cinematographer James Chressanthis constructs an homage to his heroes and forerunners. The film features appearances and insights by Karen Black, Peter Bogdanovich, Sandra Bullock, Richard Donner, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Tatum O’Neal, Jon Voight, John Williams and Sharon Stone and a host of other colleagues.
