“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford”
Samuel Johnson (English Poet, Critic and Writer. 1709-1784)

Double-billed with Yakuza Eiga on 8 May.

For a change, the camera is turned on award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle.

This documentary follows Doyle, most notably the director of photography for many of Wong Kar-wai's films, for over a year to capture his dedication to his art.

Doyle also takes us back to Bangkok and the specific locations where In the Mood for Love was shot, for some new behind-the-scenes insights. Next, he heads for Hollywood, where Doyle was the director of photography for M Night Shyamalan's The Lady in the Water.

A wonderful look at a colourful and well-respected character in the Hong Kong film industry.

Followed straight after by Yakuza Eiga, the second part of the Yves Montmayeur Far East documentary double-bill, and then completed with a Q&A with the director.
