Archive articles from Sight and Sound Magazine

We have just posted interviews with Mamoun that were published in Sight and Sound in 1979 & 1981.

Both interviews were by Penelope Houston the editor of Sight and Sound.

The interview in 1979 was conducted after Mamouns appointment to the NFFC (National Film Finance Corporation) and in 1981, revisiting what had happened after a change of government and huge changes in the industry.
