Cinematographers Laszlo Kovacs, ASC and Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC star in “No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos,” a fabulous buddy movie, airing on PBS Independent Lens, Thursday, November 17 at 10pm EST and PST. (check your local listings). The documentary is a seat-of-pants great escape movie, as film students Kovacs and Zsigmond film the Russian invasion of Hungary, and get to the West with the smuggled footage. It’s also a road movie: the two friends make their way to Hollywood, where they help define the American New Wave. Directed by fellow cinematographer James Chressanthis, ASC, with commentary and appearances by a who’s who of colleagues, directors and actors with whom they’ve worked. Required viewing for anyone interested in film.
