This is part 2 of a 5 part Interview I did with Cinematographer & Composer Gary Tarn & Hughes de Montalembert on Tarn’s independent documentary BLACK SUN about Hughes life. In 1978, Hughes de Montalembert, a French filmmaker and painter living in New York City, was attacked by two men on the way back to his apartment. During the struggle, paint thinner was thrown into his eyes by one of his assailants, scarring and blinding him for the rest of his life. For many, the story would have ended right there. For Hughes, it was just the beginning. Eighteen months after being blinded, Hughes began to travel the world — alone. __________________ Part 1: “How did you go from being a commercial media music composer to a low-budget independent filmmaker?” www.youtube.com Part 2: “What’s wrong with modern cinema today?” www.youtube.com Part 3: Hughes de Montalembert Interview www.youtube.com Part 4: “What advice can you give to young filmmakers starting out today?” www.youtube.com Part 5: “Which filmmakers do you admire?” www.youtube.com
