Barney Platts-Mills

Barney PLATTS-MILLS (1944) worked as assistant editor for Stanley Kubrick e.g. In the 1960s he discovered the Free Cinema movement; the idea of an accessible, affordable, independent model of filmmaking. According to this model he directed films as Bronco Bullfrog (1969) and Private Road (1970). In the 1980s Platts-Mills left the film industry disillusioned by its commercialization. Since 2000, he has been living in Morocco, where he founded a film school. He initially refused to give Zohra: A Moroccan Fairytale a film release, but was finally persuaded to do so.
