In Conversation – Lindsay Anderson and Mamoun Hassan

In May 1973, just after the release of Lindsay Anderson’s O Lucky Man, London University Audio Visual (LUAV) filmed a conversation/interview with Lindsay Anderson and me. O Lucky Man was the focus of the interview, which was part of an LUAV planned series of interviews with leading figures of the time. The results would be kept in a kind of time capsule and would not be released until fifty or a hundred years later. The project was abandoned early on.

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.
