Interview: ‘Who Killed British Cinema?’ directors Robin Dutta & Vinod Mahindru

by Stuart Wright

In his latest podcast/interview, host Stuart Wright talks with co-directors Robin Dutta and Vinod Mahindru about their documentary Who Killed British Cinema?, which features contributors such as Academy Award winner Sir David Lean (archive), Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, Academy Award winner Lord David Puttnam, Sir Alan Parker, Mike Hodges, Ken Loach, Stephen Frears, Jonathan Gems, Michael Kuhn, Sir Gerald Kaufman MP, and Lord Chris Smith.

A feature length documentary about the real state of the British film industry in relation to UK structures past, present and currently for the future. This film exposes the shocking truths about the UK Governments’ will to grow an indigenous British film industry, the legacy and testament of the now closed UK Film Council (UKFC), the current British Film Institute and the new Creative England. Purely in respect of the public money spent, this film challenges the notion that art is unquantifiable, highlights the question of the ‘jobs for the boys’ culture that exists in Britain, and questions the importance of a sustainable indigenous film culture that truly reflects Britain and which can be sold all over the World.
