MURCH - WALTER MURCH ON EDITING

USA / UK, 2006 (MIFF 2009, The Primal Screen)

Director: Edie Ichioka & David Ichioka

MURCH - WALTER MURCH ON EDITING

“A master class on movie editing.” - Variety

Legendary Hollywood film editor and sound man Walter Murch has worked on some of the greatest films of all time, including Apocalypse Now, the Godfather trilogy, American Graffiti and even the re-edit of Orson Welles's A Touch of Evil.

In this fascinating exploration of the craft of film editing, Murch discusses his work, his style and his collaborations with filmmakers ranging from Coppola to Anthony Minghella and George Lucas. Murch gives a frank interview about his life's work, and gives a remarkable insight into the instinctual rhythm he calls on to craft raw footage into some of cinema's most memorable scenes.

“Cinema synthesises all of the arts: it's photography… it's theatre, and it's architecture, music, and the novel - all rolled up into one.” - Walter Murch
