Aquarius - Peter Hall

UK, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 33)

Director: Derek Bailey

A profile of the English theatre, film and opera director, based on a week in his fortieth year. We see him with his family, and at the places where his work takes him: the Lyric Theatre for the rehearsal of Peter Shaffer's "The Battle of Shrivings"; to Covent Garden: a cutting room, where he is finishing his latest film, Perfect Friday.
