Peter Medak made famous films such as THE CHANGELING and THE RULING CLASS (nominated for an Oscar and the Palme d'Or). His career is full of films that deserve to be (re)discovered. Recently he returned to one of his most complicated productions: THE GHOST OF PETER SELLERS is a fascinating documentary about the comedy with Sellers that Medak made, which never made it to theaters. We talked about these and other films, and also about life and future of cinema.
