Aberdeen's Director's Cut Series to Feature David Mackenize
Director David Mackenzie will be the guest of honor and subject of focus at this year's Director's Cut series held at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. May 25 will see Sigma Film co-founder and director great in conversation at the University, where we may hear more on his work on such acclaimed films as Hallam Foe, Young Adam and Asylum. David's latest effort, Spread starring Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche is due out this summer.
A press release contained the following: "Dr Alan Marcus, Head of Film and Visual Culture at the University of Aberdeen said: "We are thrilled to have secured David Mackenzie for the Director's Cut. He has quickly established himself as an intensely creative and vital director.
"Young Adam, with its brooding narrative, is one of the most visually striking British-made films of the last 50 years, while Mackenzie's deft handling of the equally dark and mysterious Hallam Foe underlines his burgeoning reputation in the film world. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him to King's College."
Tickets are free and now available via this link to what is certain to be an excellent evening of discussion from this BAFTA winning director that will be held on May 25 at 6:00pm at the Kings College Conference Center, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. There will be a wine reception following David's talk.
What an excellent night that should be! GO DAVID GO!! Oh how I dearly wish I could be there! Readers will recall of course, that Hallam Foe author and co-screenwriter Peter Jinks also appeared at the University. I do do hope the University will upload photos, reports and fingers crossed for video.
