The Great Maysles

He needs no introduction in the documentary world.

He was one of the pioneers and remains highly influential. His films have been cited amongst the top twenty five documentary films of all time in the US.

Tomorrow I'm looking forward to attending his masterclass. His film -  a must see for all doc makers- Salesman is a studied and torturous obs doc on door-to-door bible salesman.

His name is Albert Maysles
