It would not be an exaggeration to say that Vilmos Zsigmond is one of the greatest living directors of photography. Born in Hungary, he filmed, together with his friend and colleague, Laszlo Kovacs, the 1956 revolt against the Communist regime. He then smuggled the filminto Austria, before eventually making his way to the United States. He was DoP on 82 productions, among them landmark films , such as The Deerhunter, he has worked with renowned directors, including Woody Allen and Brian de Palma, and has been nominated four times for an Academy Award, which he won in 1978 for Close Encounters of the Third Kind. On the occasion of the screening of No Subtitles Necessary, a documentary about Zsigmond and Kovacs, Vilmos Zsigmond is giving amasterclass – in the true sense of the word – on cinematography.
