Nicolas Roeg at the Riverside

Filed under: Live Events — Michael @ 9:23 am

Tomorrow I’ll be chairing a panel discussion at the Riverside Studios Cinema as part of their ambitious three-day Nicolas Roeg retrospective, jointly organised by the London Film Academy.

As far as I’m aware, the line-up includes Luc Roeg (producer of Two Deaths and co-star of Walkabout), Jeremy Thomas (producer of Bad Timing, Eureka and Insignificance), Tony Lawson (assistant editor of Don’t Look Now and then editor of all Roeg’s films from 1980-1995) and Jason Wood (writer and curator of the Riverside season) – so I suspect I won’t have very much to do except keep all the anecdotes under control.

UPDATE: Sadly, Luc Roeg had to drop out for medical reasons, but everything else went ahead as scheduled, and proved to be just about the most enjoyable event I’ve ever chaired – and Tony Lawson’s mini-masterclass on editing a couple of particularly intricate sequences from Bad Timing was worth the trip on its own.
