TIFF LONG TAKE Ep. 10: Remembering Jonathan Demme
Talking to one of cinema's most unique and varied voices
Today we remember legendary filmmaker Jonathan Demme who passed away this morning at the age of 73. Jonathan was the genius director behind classic films Silence of the Lambs, Stop Making Sense, and Rachel Getting Married, among many others.
Rob had the pleasure to sit down with Jonathan at last year's festival where the two discussed the art of the concert film (2:25), bringing a documentary approach to narrative filmmaking (12:40), and why musicians make such great actors (17:20).
